Throughout the public health emergency, Medicaid leaders have faced many unique pressures, including a changing public health environment, workforce burdens, and elevated needs of enrollees. In this first episode of Season 3 of the Medicaid Leadership Exchange podcast series, former Medicaid directors explore what they would prioritize now and into the future when the emergency unwinds — and where blind spots may lie.
This episode is hosted by Karen Seaver Hill, director of leadership development, National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD). 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); Gretchen Hammer, former Colorado Medicaid director and principle at the Public Leadership Group; and Kate McEvoy, former Connecticut Medicaid director, and program officer at Milbank Memorial Fund.
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.
