Working with State Medicaid Leaders to Promote Health Care Delivery and Payment Reforms


In 2014, when the Affordable Care Act’s expansion of eligibility takes effect, Medicaid enrollment is expected to grow by 16 million, making the federal–state program the largest purchaser of health insurance. As fiscal pressures mount at the federal and state levels, Medicaid will also likely take on a greater role in driving needed reforms to health care delivery and provider reimbursement. To prepare for these changes, communication and collaboration between state officials and policy researchers, and between state and federal policymakers, will be important. Through briefings, webinars, and conference calls, the National Association of Medicaid Directors seeks to inform federal dialogue on Medicaid reforms, enable state Medicaid directors to share ideas and best practices, and provide guidance and support to these officials as they design and implement system and payment reforms. Particular attention will be paid to opportunities for better coordination of services for at-risk populations and for evidence-based quality measurement.
