Medicaid Who’s Who: Ben Reno-Weber – Chief Storyteller (AKA CEO) with MobileServe

  1.  Which segment of the industry are you currently involved?

A: Community Engagement; We’re a tech company that helps support community service engagement, from compiling volunteer opportunities, to connecting with non-profits, to supporting clients in reporting their hours.

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

A: 1 year.  As a company, we have been focused on creating tools and resources for schools, universities, companies, and nonprofits. The extension of our technology into the court and government space is recent.

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

A: Helping all people to reach their full potential. 

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

A: Wine tour of Italy.

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

A: I’m a huge policy nerd, so reading about and talking about data and community-building is relaxing to me.

 6. Who is your favorite historical figure and why? 

A: Elizabeth I, she presided over a period of profound social and technological change, and managed to balance between authoritarianism and freedom (at least relative to other European countries at the time)

7.  What is your favorite junk food?

A: Hot Cheetos

 8.  Of what accomplishment are you most proud?

A: I have worked successful in business, government, and non-profits.

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

A: I wish I had learned to golf.

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

A: Fundamentally, how do we preserve the best outcomes of the expansion, helping support people in “graduating” from Medicaid for the right reasons?  In an expanding economy, we have the opportunity to create the wrap-around resources that people will need to escape poverty, which will impact not only them, but their children and communities.  If we do this well, it will be transformational.  If we do it poorly, it will be tragedy.
