Josh LaRosa joined the Wynne Health Group in November 2018, bringing with him over three years of federal health care policy consulting experience. The majority of his experience in the federal consulting space has been with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and he in particular has worked heavily with the agency’s Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI).
With CMMI, Josh worked to implement, monitor, and spread learning garnered from the center’s high-profile demonstration projects, most recently including the national primary care redesign effort, Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+). Josh has also assisted a multitude of provider organizations participating in CMMI’s Health Care Innovation Awards Round One and Two to implement their innovative health care delivery and payment models. Through such experiences, Josh has been exposed to a wide array of innovations in health care delivery, and is deeply interested in how changing provider, patient, and payer incentives can result in a higher quality and more cost-effective health care delivery system.
Josh holds a Master of Public Policy from the University of Virginia’s Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy, where he had the opportunity to work with a D.C.-based non-profit and explore policy options for addressing the behavioral health needs of military and veteran families. Josh also completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Virginia, graduating cum laude with a B.A. in Political Philosophy, Policy, and Law.
