About the Critical Conversations in Medicaid Series
After evaluating thought leadership publications in the Medicaid space, we decided to create an authentic, meaningful platform to elevate discussion around important topics. Our Critical Conversations in Medicaid Series explores topics through the lens of multiple perspectives, including interviews with experts across stakeholder groups. We choose a topic and design the project before we seek support. And when we obtain support from a sponsor, we retain editorial independence. In this way we are able to deliver true thought leadership instead of just marketing pieces.
Each topic in our series includes podcasts and issue briefs designed to help our audience get up to speed quickly on emerging industry topics.
About The Medicaid Buy-in, Healthcare Marketplaces, and the Public Option Installment in the Series
As states continue to explore new ways to make healthcare coverage more affordable, one of the key options states have been considering is called Medicaid Buy-In. Medicaid Buy-In programs can take many forms, and are usually linked to state health marketplaces. At their core, these efforts resemble the original Public Option in the Affordable Care Act.
This series includes several podcast interviews with state legislators, policy advocates, and technology experts.
