Unwinding Pandemic-Era Medicaid Policies Requires Teamwork
Episode five, season three of the Medicaid Leadership Exchange Podcast explores the complexities of unwinding pandemic-era Medicaid policies.
Medicaid leaders may soon face the challenge of rethinking policies created during the COVID-19 public health emergency, which is currently set to expire in October. This new episode of the Medicaid Leadership Exchange podcast explores the complexities of this task and the opportunities it provides, such as codifying waivers related to telehealth and streamlining services and supports for beneficiaries.
This podcast episode is hosted by Gretchen Hammer, former Colorado Medicaid director and principal at the Public Leadership Group. She is joined by Tara LeBlanc, Medicaid executive director at the Louisiana Department of Health; Henry Lipman, Medicaid director at the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services; and Ed O’Neil, principal at O’Neil & Associates, a management consulting and leadership development firm focused on change and renewal in the health care system.
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.
