JEFFERSON CITY — Rep. Caleb Rowden, R-Columbia, announced Tuesday that he has accepted an appointment to the board of trustees for Missouri Consolidated Health Care Plan.

The health care plan covers nearly 100,000 state and public entity employees and retirees, according to its website. Created by statute, it is directed by the 13 members of the board of trustees.

Rowden is the owner of Clarius Interactive, a small business that focuses on interactive design and marketing. In a news release, Rowden said he would use knowledge from his background while working on the board.

"I am truly honored to have been chosen to serve on the MCHCP board," Rowden said. "MCHCP members expect fiscal responsibility, innovation, and quality health coverage that can adapt to changing needs and regulations; as a legislator and small business owner, I am eager to offer my experience to the MCHCP team.”

House Speaker Timothy Jones, R-Eureka, appointed Rowden for the position.
