Complex policy and political choices for Medicaid may get a lot of press, but the management challenges for the largest program in a state’s budget are not as well recognized. The Milbank Memorial Fund turned to a former governor and former director of a state health and human services agency—and asked them to draw on their own experience to help the nation’s governors understand why focusing on Medicaid management is so important.
In this issue brief, John Kitzhaber, MD, former governor of Oregon, and Bruce Goldberg, MD, former director of the Office for Oregon Health Policy and Research, outline why strong Medicaid management matters and the key attributes needed for that management. Speaking directly to governors, the authors spell out why greater state investment in Medicaid administration is critical.
