Medicaid Who’s Who: Jeff Myers – President and CEO, Medicaid Health Plans of America (MHPA)

  1.  How many years have you been in the Medicaid industry?

A: Four (dog) years

 2.  What is your focus/passion? (Industry related or not)

A: Leaving the world a better place than I found it – if that includes motorcycles, sailing, or Medicaid reform, then all the better

 3.  What is the top item on your “bucket list?”

A: Hearing one of my children say “you know, Dad, you’re right.”

 4.  What do you enjoy doing most with your personal time?

A: With three kids, there is no such thing.

5. Who is your favorite historical figure and why? 

A: And this is risky (it is what I said to the Board): Joan of Arc – she did what she thought she was called to do, and was willing to burn at the stake for her beliefs.

6.  What is your favorite junk food?

A:  whiskey

 7.  Of what accomplishment are you most proud?

A: Hiking the Andes over an old Jesuit trail with my now-wife and not scaring her off.

 8. For what one thing do you wish you could get a mulligan?

A: Every mistake is a learning opportunity and chance for growth, and every mulligan I have ever taken on the golf course has ended the exact same way as the first shot.

 9. What are the top 1-3 issues that you think will be important in Medicaid during the next 6 months? 

A:

      • CMS decision(s) on all of the pending waivers;
      • Congressional decisions on  the future of the funding structure for Medicaid;
      • CHIP extension of current and future reauthorization
      • (since this is only 6 months)
