Dome Magazine Profiles Blues President and CEO Daniel J. Loepp

Daniel J. Loepp’s Detroit upbringing, work ethic, ambition and “ability to read political tea leaves” take center stage in a new Dome Magazine profile of the president and CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.

The profile “Comfortable with Politics,” by business writer Carol Cain, touches on Loepp’s previous  role as chief of staff for former Michigan House Speaker Curtis Hertel. It discusses how Loepp joined the Blues in 2000, was asked to lead the company in 2006 and has emerged as a strong civic leader:

    Being a doctor will no logenr be an economically suitable job. Therefore, med students or med student hopefuls and current doctors will begin to pursue other professions. So people who need medical attention will still pay for it through taxes, and they’ll get a lesser quality of care.Kind of a lose-lose situation, if you ask me.And it increases dependency on the government And it gives illegals, who DON’T pay their taxes, free health care meaning we get to pay for them if they break a leg, even though they’re here breaking our laws.Make that a lose-lose-lose-lose situation.
