Veteran Humana Leader Appointed to Top Medicare Position in South Florida

Humana Inc., the most extensive Medicare Advantage plan in Florida, recently filled its top Medicare role in South Florida with a seasoned health care executive who has held top executive positions in the company.

Caraline Coats, a 14-year Humana veteran, will lead Humana’s South Florida Medicare market and report to Alan Stewart, Humana Senior Vice President and Southeast Division Leader. As South Florida Medicare President, Coats is responsible for developing and expanding Humana’s Medicare business in the 11-county South Florida region, including Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties, and the Treasure Coast.

Coats also serves as interim-CEO of The Humana Foundation and will continue to do so until that role is filled. Coats expanded Humana’s Alliance provider relationships to approximately 170 Alliance clinic locations in her most recent corporate role as vice president of Provider Alliance. Before that, she served as Vice President of Humana’s Bold Goal and Population Health Strategy, leading the company’s initiative to improve the health of the communities it serves across the country.

Coats earned an undergraduate degree in biology and a master’s in health services administration from the University of Michigan. While a Michigan native, she and her family have resided in South Florida for the past 12 years.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
