James Carlson, who led Amerigroup as it became one of the biggest insurers focused on Medicaid, is reportedly among the leading candidates to become the new CEO of WellPoint (WLP) to replace the ousted Angela Braly. Carlson joined WellPoint last month following its $4.9B acquisition of Amerigroup, but his position has yet to be defined, nor has his compensation package been made public.
