About our Critical Conversations in Medicaid Series

What is the project? 

Independent analysis and discussion of key topics in podcasts series and whitepapers.

Why is the project important? 

Because there is a lack of broad-perspective discussion on multiple critical topics in the Medicaid industry. We want to fill that gap with in-depth podcasts and whitepapers that cover key topics from multiple perspectives.
