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 season 3 premiere of the Medicaid Leadership Exchange podcast, 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 at the 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 principal at the Public Leadership Group; and Kate McEvoy, former Connecticut Medicaid director, and program officer at Milbank Memorial Fund.
