"As the health care system in the U.S. evolves from a traditional fee-for-service model to a more integrated outcome-based model based on patient risk assessment, all facets of the health care system must evolve as well," said Andrea Inserra, Booz Allen senior vice president and a leader in the firm's military health business. "Al Middleton is a recognized thought leader whose experience and expertise in all areas of health care delivery will help shape that transformation."

He also served as the Acting Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs for 20 months and as the Principal Deputy Director, TRICARE Management Activity.
He entered federal service in 1972 with a commission in the Air Force Medical Service Corps. Mr. Middleton served on active duty until 2001, when he retired after serving in numerous senior-level positions in the Air Force Medical Service. Mr. Middleton returned to federal service in 2004 with the TRICARE Management Activity financial management office. He was selected for the position as Chief Financial Officer of the Air Force Medical Service in 2005 and was later selected as Director of Financial Plans and Policy in Health Affairs.
Mr. Middleton holds a Masters of Business Administration and a Bachelor of Arts (cum laude) from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst Massachusetts.
