As a state-federal program, federal decisions and actions shape what each state’s Medicaid program looks like and achieves. NAMD’s federal policy work ensures that Medicaid Directors are at the table in critical federal policy debates. We keep our members informed of the pulse of Congressional and administration activity, identify the perspectives of the members on the issues of the day, and communicate those views to federal decisionmakers and the broader Medicaid stakeholder community. The resources here articulate NAMD’s views on a wide array of Medicaid policy issues.
