The pandemic has placed significant strain on Medicaid and its leaders. One valuable outcome of this difficult era, however, is the unprecedented attention being paid to home- and community-based services (HCBS) and the caregivers that underpin these programs. This new episode of the Medicaid Leadership Exchange podcast explores how Medicaid leaders can leverage this spotlight on HCBS to drive immediate improvements in care and delivery, while relying on long-term vision.
This episode is hosted by Gretchen Hammer, former Colorado Medicaid director and principal at the Public Leadership Group. She is joined by Mark Larson, former Vermont Medicaid director and senior vice president of leadership and capacity building at the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS); Lee Grossman, administrator for Home and Community Based Services Section, and Division of Healthcare Financing at the Wyoming Department of Health; and Kevin Bagley, Medicaid director for the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.
Medicaid Leadership Exchange is a podcast series exploring priority topics for Medicaid leaders developed in partnership with NAMD and the Center for Health Care Strategies through support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
