Indianapolis-based Apex Benefits has added former Congressman Todd Rokita to its ranks. The benefits strategy and services provider says Rokita will serve as general counsel and vice president of external affairs.

In his new role, Rokita will oversee corporate legal strategies and lead public policy initiatives for the agency throughout the state and country. Apex says he will also collaborate with industry experts to "drive positive transformation of healthcare and employee benefits issues."

"As Apex continues rapidly evolving to meet the needs of our clients and demands of the ever-changing healthcare industry, it’s become increasingly more important to add an experienced legal and public policy perspective to our team," John Gause, chief executive officer of Apex, said in a news release. "The timing is ideal for us to join forces and our missions couldn’t have aligned better."

Rokita, who is also a former Indiana secretary of state, says his goal is to continuing the agency's mission to provide cost-effective healthcare solutions for employers.

Rokita represented Indiana's fourth district from 2011 until January 2019. Last year, he sought the Republican nomination for then-Senator Joe Donnelly's seat but lost to Mike Braun in the primary. He also sought the GOP nomination for governor in 2016, which ultimately went to then-Lieutenant Governor Eric Holcomb.
