Gov. Asa Hutchinson replaces health insurance exchanges board members


LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — Gov. Asa Hutchinson has replaced the chairman and one other member of a state board that establishes health insurance exchanges for small-business employees and individual consumers.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1TrONCT ) reported Tuesday that the governor removed Chris Parker, an attorney who was elected chairman of the Arkansas Health Insurance Marketplace Board on Sept. 30, and Annabelle Imber Tuck, a former state Supreme Court justice. They were appointed to the board by former Gov. Mike Beebe in 2013.

They have been replaced by John Womack, chief executive of Arvest Bank in central Arkansas, and Phillip Gilmore, chief executive of Ashley County Medical Center in Crossett.

J.R. Davis, a spokesman for the governor, said the two new members of the board share the Hutchinson's vision of the board's direction.
