Rick Perry: From Texas governor to Florida lobbyist

After three decades in public life, including 14 years as governor, Rick Perry, private citizen, has registered as a lobbyist in Florida representing a dental benefits management firm whose top brass were the biggest contributors to his second failed presidential bid last year.

Perry has signed on as chief strategy officer for MCNA Dental, the largest privately held dental insurance company in the country and a leading administrator of dental benefits for Medicaid, the federal Children’s Health Insurance Plan and Medicare programs. It serves nearly 4 million members across the United States and offers one of two dental plans that provide Medicaid and CHIP services across Texas, with 1,327,000 Medicaid clients and 151,600 CHIP recipients, according to the state Health and Human Services Commission.
