For years, Medicaid leaders have faced a mounting children’s behavioral health crisis — made worse by the pandemic. In this new episode of the Medicaid Leadership Exchange podcast, three Medicaid leaders discuss the behavioral health needs of children and opportunities for Medicaid to better support those needs.
This episode is hosted by Gretchen Hammer, former Colorado Medicaid director and principal at the Public Leadership Group. She is joined by Benjamin F. Miller, president of Well Being Trust; Emily Bailey, chief of Behavioral Health at MassHealth; and Catherine Ivy, deputy executive director of Service Delivery and Administration at Georgia Department of Community Health.
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.
