VIEWPOINT — WHERE WE STAND
Kevin Prindiville Named NSCLC Executive Director
After an extensive, nationwide search involving the board and staff, the National Senior Citizens Law Center Board of Directors named current Deputy Director Kevin Prindiville as the new Executive Director at its meeting June 1 in Los Angeles. He starts July 1.
Kevin began as a Staff Attorney at NSCLC’s Oakland office in 2006. He currently leads the organization’s Health Team and has been Deputy Director since 2011. As Deputy Director, he has assisted current Executive Director Paul Nathanson in the oversight of development, communications, administration, and finance.
A proven leader, Kevin has gained national prominence in promoting consumer protection of people who have both Medicare and Medicaid (dual eligibles). As many states seek to move millions of low-income elderly and people with disabilities into managed care plans, he leads advocacy efforts around both national and California-focused demonstration projects that are having a significant impact on the design of demonstrations affecting millions of people.
The author of several substantive reports and briefs, he frequently testifies before legislators, presents at national conferences and works closely with both federal and state regulatory agencies to accomplish NSCLC’s advocacy goals. He is often quoted in both national and California media.
He has also been lead counsel in a national class action ensuring dual eligibles get full access to benefits under Medicare Part D and co-counsel in various Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security class actions.
Prior to joining NSCLC, Kevin worked as a staff attorney at the Pennsylvania Health Law Project in Philadelphia. He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School and the University of California, San Diego.
Paul Nathanson, who has headed NSCLC since 2008, will remain involved in NSCLC both during the transition and for the foreseeable future.
