than due to physical or mental incapacity), which failure continues for thirty (30) days (other than respect to any such failure or breach which cannot be cured within such period) following receipt of written notice from the Board of Directors
specifying such failure, or which failure represents a pattern of failing to comply with the lawful and reasonable direction of the Board of Directors.

to the best of his ability, and to devote his full time business hours, energy, ability, attention and skill to the business of the Company; provided, however, that the foregoing is not intended to preclude Executive from noncompetitive

however, under any circumstances, provide services or advice in any capacity whatsoever for or on behalf of any entity that competes with or is competitive with the Company.

Executive shall be entitled to participate in the employee benefits plans and programs made available to executive level employees of the Company generally, such as health, medical, dental and other insurance coverage and group retirement plans. The

such reasonable documentation and other limitations as may be established or required by the Company.
5.1 Termination Due to Death or Disability. If Executive’s employment is terminated by reason of Executive’s death or
Disability, Executive or his estate shall be entitled to receive: (a) Executive’s accrued Base Salary through the Termination Date; (b) an amount for reimbursement, paid within 60 days following submission by Executive (or if
applicable, Executive’s estate) to the Company of appropriate supporting documentation for any unreimbursed business expenses properly incurred prior to the Termination Date by Executive pursuant to Section 4 and in accordance with Company
policy; (c) any accrued and unpaid vacation pay, paid within 60 days of the Termination Date (or earlier if required by applicable law); and (d) such employee benefits, if any, to which Executive (or, if applicable, Executive’s
estate) or his dependents may be entitled under the employee benefit plans or programs of the Company, paid in accordance with the terms of the applicable plans or programs (the amounts described in clauses (a) through (d) hereof being referred
to as the “Accrued Rights”).
5.2 Termination by Executive for Other Than Good Reason. In the event
Executive terminates his employment for other than Good Reason, Executive shall be entitled to receive the Accrued Rights, but following the Termination Date, Executive shall have no further rights to any other compensation or benefits under
this Agreement, including without limitation any severance or continuation of benefits or otherwise. Executive shall provide the Company sixty (60) days’ prior written notice of his intention to terminate his employment with the Company
pursuant to this Section 5.2.
5.3 Termination by the Company for Cause. In the event the Company terminates his
employment for Cause, Executive shall be entitled to receive the Accrued Rights, but following the Termination Date, Executive shall have no further rights to any other compensation or benefits under this Agreement, including without limitation any
severance or continuation of benefits or otherwise.
5.4 Termination by the Company Other Than for Death, Disability or Cause or by Executive
for Good Reason. If Executive’s employment is terminated by the Company for reasons other than death, Disability or Cause, or is terminated by Executive for Good Reason, Executive shall be entitled to receive (a) a monthly
severance payment in an amount equal to the sum of (I) the annualized average of the last three (3) years of the Executive’s Base Salary plus Bonus, in effect as of immediately prior to the date of such termination, divided by
(II) twelve (the “Severance Benefits”), for the period set forth in Section 5.6; and (b) the Accrued Rights. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, Executive may terminate his employment hereunder for
Good Reason within a period of time not to exceed ninety (90) days following the initial existence of the event(s) that constitute Good Reason. For purposes of this Agreement, Good Reason shall not occur unless Executive gives written notice to
the Company within thirty (30) days of the occurrence of any of the events listed under the definition of Good Reason in Section 1 hereof and such event remains uncured sixty (60) days after the Company’s receipt of such notice.
Such termination shall occur immediately following expiration of the cure period to the extent such event remains uncured.
Termination by Mutual Consent. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing provisions of this Section 5, if at any time during the course of this Agreement the parties by mutual consent decide to terminate Executive’s
employment, they may do so by separate agreement setting forth the terms and conditions of such termination.
5.6 Payment of
Severance. Unless otherwise set forth herein, any Severance Benefits owed to Executive pursuant to Section 5 hereof shall be paid out monthly by the Company for a minimum of one (1) year after the Termination Date and,
subject to delivery of a Severance Notice pursuant to this Section 5.6, during the entire Restricted Period (as defined below) commencing on the sixtieth (60th) day following the Termination
Date and in accordance with the Company’s standard payroll schedule and practices; provided, however, that Severance Benefits owed to Executive shall immediately cease and no Severance Benefits shall be paid by the Company to Executive if at
any time after the first anniversary of the Termination Date, the Company provides written notice (such notice, the “Severance Notice”) to Executive stating (a) the obligations and restrictions set forth in
Section 6.1 of this Agreement no longer apply to Executive and (b) the final end date of the Restricted Period. Executive acknowledges and agrees that no Severance Benefits will be paid by the Company to Executive following delivery of a
Severance Notice to Executive.
5.7 Release of Claims; Offsets. As a condition to the receipt of any Severance Benefits,
Executive shall be required to execute, and not subsequently revoke, within sixty (60) days following the termination of his employment a release in a form reasonably acceptable to the Company of all claims arising out of his employment or the
termination thereof. After the first anniversary of the Termination Date, Severance Benefits, if any, may also be offset by any earnings of Executive after the first anniversary of the Termination Date from other employment. While receiving
Severance Benefits, Executive shall notify the Company upon obtaining other employment and provide evidence of base salary and/or bonus and incentive payments that Executive may receive from new employment while receiving Severance Benefits.
5.8 Cooperation with Company after Termination of Employment. Following termination of Executive’s employment for any
reason, Executive shall reasonably cooperate with the Company in all matters relating to the winding up of his pending work on behalf of the Company including, but not limited to, any litigation in which the Company is involved and the
orderly transfer of any such pending work to other employees of the Company as may be
designated by the Company. The Company shall reasonably compensate Executive for services rendered pursuant to this Section 5.8 at a rate to be determined by the parties. In addition, the
Company shall reimburse Executive for any reasonable out-of-pocket expenses he incurs in performing any work on behalf of the Company following the termination of his
6. NON-SOLICITATION &
Executive agrees that during the Term and for three (3) years following the Termination Date (the “Restricted Period”), Executive shall not, anywhere in the areas where the Company conducts business (or has
expanded resources or time to plan the conduct of business) during the Term, including, but not limited to the United States (the “Restricted Territory”), directly or indirectly, own, manage, operate, join, control or
participate in the ownership, management, operation or control of, or be an officer or an employee of any business or organization that, directly or indirectly (i) provides medical or health care services of any type to Medicare beneficiaries,
or (ii) offers or manages any plan contracting with the Medicare Advantage program or with any dual Medicare/Medicaid program or provides administrative or other services to such plan (each, a “Restricted Business”). The
foregoing shall not restrict Executive from owning up to 1% of any class of securities of any person engaged in a Restricted Business if such securities are listed on any national or regional securities exchange or have been registered under
Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, as long as such securities are held solely as a passive investment and not with a view to influencing, controlling or directing the affairs of such person. Executive acknowledges
and agrees that the Restricted Period may be for a period less than three (3) years following the Termination Date if (and only if) the Company delivers a Severance Notice pursuant to Section 5.6 but in no event shall such period be for a
period less than one year following the Termination Date.
Executive agrees that during the Restricted Period, Executive will not, directly or indirectly, for himself or on behalf of or in conjunction with any other person, (i) solicit, induce, attempt to solicit or induce, or hire or
attempt to hire any person that is an employee of the Company or was within twelve (12) months prior to the Termination Date; provided, however, this Section 6.2 shall not be breached by a solicitation to the general public or through
general advertising and Executive may solicit for employment any person who at the Termination Date had not been an employee of the Company at any time within six (6) months preceding such date or whose employment with the Company had
terminated more than six (6) months prior to Executive’s solicitation of such person or (ii) solicit, advise or encourage any person, firm, government agency or corporation (a “Customer”) (including without
limitation any potential customer of the Company that is engaged in discussion with the Company to do business with the Company), to withdraw, curtail or cancel its business (or potential business) with the Company.
6.3 Non-Disparagement. During the Term and thereafter, Executive agrees that he
will not, at any time, make, directly or indirectly, any oral or written statements that are disparaging of the Company, its business, its products or services, or any of its present or former officers, directors, members, stockholders, managers or
6.4 Reasonable Limitation and Severability. The parties agree that the
above restrictions on competition are (i) appropriate and reasonable given Executive’s role with and knowledge of the Company, and are necessary to protect the interests of the Company and (ii) completely severable and
independent agreements supported by good and valuable consideration and, as such, shall survive the termination of this Agreement for any reason whatsoever. Executive acknowledges that Executive has carefully considered the terms of this Agreement,
including the restrictive covenants set forth in this Section 6, and acknowledges that if this Agreement is enforced according to its terms, Executive will be able to earn a reasonable living in commercial activities unrelated to the business
of the Company in locations satisfactory to Executive. Executive also acknowledges that the restrictive covenants set forth in this Section 6 are a vital part of and are intrinsic to the ongoing operations of the Company, in light of the nature
of the business of the Company and the unique position, skills and knowledge of Executive with the Company. The parties further agree that any invalidity or unenforceability of any one or more of such restrictions on competition shall not render
invalid or unenforceable any remaining restrictions on competition. Additionally, should a court of competent jurisdiction determine that the scope of any provision of this Section 6 is too broad to be enforced as written, the parties hereby
authorize the court to reform the provision to such narrower scope as it determines to be reasonable and enforceable and the parties intend that the affected provision be enforced as so amended. Executive acknowledges and agrees that to the extent
Executive has breached or is in breach of any of the covenants set forth in Sections 6.1 or 6.2, the Restricted Period shall be extended by an amount of time equal to the duration of such breach.
6.5 Confidential Information. Executive acknowledges and agrees that the customers, business connections, customer lists,
procedures, operations, techniques and other aspects of and information about the business of the Company (the “Confidential Information”) are established at great expense and protected as confidential
information and provide the Company with a substantial competitive advantage in conducting its business. Executive further acknowledges and agrees that by virtue of his employment with the Company, he has had access to and will have access to, and
has been entrusted with and will be entrusted with Confidential Information, and that the Company would suffer great loss and injury if Executive would disclose this information or use it in a manner not specifically authorized by the Company.
Therefore, Executive agrees that during the Term and at all times thereafter, he will not, directly or indirectly, either individually or as an employee, agent, partner, shareholder, owner trustee, beneficiary,
co-venturer distributor, consultant or in any other capacity, use or disclose or cause to be used or disclosed any Confidential Information, unless and to the extent that any such information becomes generally
known to and available for use by the public other than as a result of Executive’s acts or omissions. Executive shall deliver to the Company at the termination of the Term, or at any other time the Company may request, all memoranda, notes,
plans, records, reports, computer discs, flash drives, printouts and software and other documents and data (and copies thereof) in any media form relating to the Confidential Information, Work Product (as defined below) or the business of the
Company which he may then possess or have under his control. Executive acknowledges and agrees that all inventions, innovations, improvements, developments, methods, designs, analyses, drawings, reports and all similar or related information
(whether or not patentable) that relate to the Company’s actual or anticipated business research and development or existing or future products or services and that are conceived, developed or made by the Executive while employed by the Company
(“Work Product”) belong to the Company.

Non-Waiver of Breach. No failure by either party to declare a default due to any breach of any obligation under this Agreement by the other, nor failure by either party to act quickly with

effect of this Agreement and the rights and obligations of the parties hereto shall be construed and determined in accordance with the law of Illinois, without application of conflict of law principles. THE PARTIES IRREVOCABLY CONSENT TO THE

DEMAND, ACTION, CAUSE OF ACTION (I) ARISING UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR (II) IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH OR RELATED OR INCIDENTAL TO THE DEALINGS OF THE PARTIES HERETO IN RESPECT OF THIS AGREEMENT WHETHER NOW EXISTING OR HEREAFTER ARISING, AND

7.8 Entire Agreement. This Agreement contains all of the terms agreed upon by the Company and Executive with respect to
the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements, arrangements and communications between the parties dealing with such subject matter, whether oral or written, except with respect to breaches by Executive of any prior employment or

to be disregarded. The headings in this Agreement are in no way intended to describe, interpret, define, or limit the scope, extent or intent of this Agreement.

all of which when taken together, shall be and constitute one and the same instrument.
7.12 Specific Enforcement; Remedies.
The provisions of Section 6 of this Agreement are to be specifically enforced if not performed according to their terms. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the parties acknowledge that the Company would be irreparably damaged
and there would be no adequate remedy at law for Executive’s breach of Section 6 of this Agreement and further acknowledge that the Company may obtain a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction, in addition to any other
remedies available at law or in equity, to enforce the provisions thereof, without the Company being required to post a bond or other security therefor. In addition, in the event of a material violation by Executive of the provisions of
Section 6, any severance being paid to Executive pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise shall immediately cease.
7.13 Taxes & IRC Section 409A Matters.
The Company may withhold from any payment hereunder such state, federal or local income, employment or other taxes and other legally mandated withholdings as it reasonably deems appropriate. The Company makes no representation about the tax
treatment or impact of any payment(s) hereunder. The intent of the parties is that payments and benefits under this Agreement comply with Section 409A of the Code, as amended (“Section 409A”), to the extent
subject thereto, and, accordingly, to the maximum extent permitted, this Agreement shall be interpreted and administered to be in compliance therewith. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary: (i) if at the time of Executive’s
termination of employment with the Company, Executive is a “specified employee” as defined in Section 409A and the deferral of the commencement of any payments or benefits otherwise payable hereunder as a result of such termination of
employment is necessary in order to prevent any accelerated or additional tax under Section 409A, then the Company will defer the commencement of the payment of any such payments or benefits hereunder (without any reduction in such payments or
benefits ultimately paid or provided to Executive) until the date that is six (6) months following Executive’s termination of employment with the Company (or the earliest date as is permitted under Section 409A); (ii) if any other
payments of money or other benefits due to Executive hereunder could cause the application of an accelerated or additional tax under Section 409A, such payments or other benefits shall be deferred if deferral will make such payment or other
benefits compliant under Section 409A, or otherwise such payment or other benefits shall be restructured, to the extent possible, in a manner determined by the Company that does not cause such an accelerated or additional tax; (iii) to the
extent required in order to avoid accelerated taxation and/or tax penalties under Section 409A, Executive shall not be considered to have terminated employment with the Company for purposes of this Agreement and no payment shall be due to
Executive under this Agreement until Executive would be considered to have incurred a “separation from service” from the Company within the meaning of Section 409A; and (iv) each amount to be paid or benefit to be provided to
Executive pursuant to this Agreement, which constitute deferred compensation subject to Section 409A, shall be construed as a separate identified payment for purposes of Section 409A. To the extent required to avoid an accelerated or
additional tax under Section 409A, amounts reimbursable to Executive under this Agreement shall be paid to Executive on or before the last day of the year following the year in which the expense was incurred and the amount of expenses eligible
for reimbursement (and in-kind benefits provided to Executive) during any one year may not affect amounts reimbursable or provided in any subsequent year. Neither the Company nor any of its employees or
representatives shall have any liability to Executive with respect to Section 409A.
7.14 Survival. Except as otherwise
expressly provided in this Agreement, all covenants, representations and warranties, express or implied, in addition to the provisions of Sections 6 and 7 of this Agreement, shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
7.15 Review by Counsel. Executive has been advised that Executive should consult with his own legal advisor prior to executing
this Agreement, and Executive acknowledges that he has had the opportunity to consult with and review the terms of this Agreement with counsel prior to execution of this Agreement.
