The National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD) will support Medicaid directors and their teams in efforts to build stronger, more equitable Medicaid programs. The project will: 1) connect directors and staff to resources and colleagues; 2) elevate directors’ shared priorities to ensure Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) can operate through health and financial challenges; and 3) enhance NAMD’s ability to serve as a trusted source for collecting, analyzing, and disseminating information. NAMD will focus on three areas: 1) ensuring program sustainability; 2) maintaining access to care during the pandemic and building patient-centered, equitable delivery systems; and 3) implementing core competencies from the Framework for Public Sector Leadership, a collaboration of the Center for Health Care Strategies, the Milbank Memorial Fund, and NAMD.
