Albert Cortina is Senior Advisor for LogistiCare. In his previous role as Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) , he had direct oversight over finance, accounting and network claims management; contract development, negotiations and implementation; underwriting and contract trend reporting; system and process optimization analysis; centralized facility and purchase management, contract compliance and risk management. He also provides important input into the company's business development and growth strategies.
Albert has been integrally involved in the growth of LogistiCare since 1997. He became Interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO) on January 4, 2017 and remained in this position until Jeff Felton joined as LogistiCare’s full time CEO. He served as the company's Chief Operating Officer for more than five years and served as Executive VP of Finance and Strategic Development, as well as Controller. He was instrumental in rolling up the “any provider billing” State claims-based NET business and in developing, selling and proving out the cost savings and quality benefits of privatization of the non-emergency transportation model to Governor’s Office, Chief of Staffs and Medicaid Agencies. He was key in developing the software management system and business processes used by all LogistiCare operations today to deliver high quality, affordable, medical transportation services. Albert led the transition from the company's original platform and dispatching software to its current multi-disciplined and multi-module integrated proprietary management software of LogistiCAD™ today, which effectively integrates all aspects of NET operations.
Albert came to LogistiCare after holding the Chief Financial Officer position with Premier Practice Management, a multi-specialty physician practice management organization; and its successor, Caremark/MedPartners Physicians Services Inc. Prior to that, he held various executive positions with private physician groups and with the Georgia Department of Audits Medicaid Division, where he conducted Medicaid health and cost report audits on national nursing homes, home health agencies and hospitals.
Albert earned a BS in Accounting from Florida State University, and he is a licensed Certified Public Accountant.
