Former health exchange CEO pays $5,000 state ethics penalty


The former CEO of Connecticut’s health insurance coverage exchange has paid a $5,000 civil penalty for accepting employment with a state contractor too quickly after leaving Access Health CT.

The Office of State Ethics introduced Wednesday the contractor, New York-based Softheon Inc., may also pay a $5,000 penalty for providing James Wadleigh (Wahd-LEE’) employment. The firm employed him in September as chief working officer, 5 months after he left the exchange.

Wadleigh in 2017 participated in awarding the corporate a state contract valued at greater than $50,000 for info know-how providers. But state regulation prevented him from accepting employment with Softheon lower than a yr after leaving Access Health.

Wadleigh says he misunderstood the restriction and resigned from Softheon in October. The firm admits to violating the state’s ethics code.
