At Noridian, we are led by a board of directors. Many measures have been taken to guarantee independence and expertise on our board. All members are unaffiliated with health care providers and three are independent of Noridian, other than serving on the board.

How our board of directors is chosen

Our Audit, Compliance and Governance Committee helps define requirements for new members. The committee weighs issues such as judgment, diversity, experience, understanding of government regulation and many other areas.

The committee then makes recommendations to the Board on director selection. Board members are limited to four three-year terms, for a total of 12 years.

The second Board committee is the Finance and Human Resources Committee. The purpose of this committee is to oversee all areas of finance that are delegated to the committee including reviewing recommendations as to compensation and benefits philosophy and Noridian’s annual budget.
