Jason Tompkins was named the NJ/NY market president for Aetna in August 2021. Tompkins has lead Aetna’s commercial and Medicare businesses in New Jersey and New York, driving the company’s overall strategy in the market. Tompkins, who has more than a decade of experience with Aetna, previously served as growth officer for the North Atlantic territory. In addition to nearly 25 years of health plan experience, he spent time with MDLIVE pioneering the evolution of virtual behavioral health.
Tompkins is passionate about improving the behavioral health care system. His personal and professional experience have caused him to be acutely aware of the current shortcomings and he explains how working for a company that plays a critical role in care delivery has made it a priority of his to help improve access to quality behavioral health care and improve the overall experience for Aetna’s nearly 3 million members in the metro NY area. As a Board member he says, “I’m eager to learn more about the inner workings of a community-based non-profit while helping NAMI-NYC reach more individuals in need.”
