It’s been a long time since Medicaid agencies simply paid claims for services delivered. In many states, Medicaid is a key driver of broader delivery system and payment reforms, and often works in partnership with other agencies to innovate the way states address social determinants of health and gaps in health equity. Join Gretchen Hammer, MPH, former Colorado Medicaid director and senior strategic advisor for the National Association of Medicaid Directors; Allison Taylor, JD, Indiana Medicaid director; Cindy Beane, MSW, West Virginia Medicaid director; and Mark Larson, former Vermont Medicaid director and senior vice president of leadership and capacity building at the Center for Health Care Strategies, as they share insights regarding how they have nurtured cross-agency relationships.


Medicaid Leadership Exchange is a podcast series exploring priority topics for Medicaid leaders developed in partnership with the National Association of Medicaid Directors and the Center for Health Care Strategies through support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
