Ideas and Programs That Impact Health Care for Millions
Realizing Innovative Opportunities
Sellers Dorsey achieves results for state Medicaid programs by rooting our work in a consummate understanding of Medicaid policy. Designing programs that simultaneously align stakeholder priorities, comply with federal regulation, and strengthen our nation’s health care delivery system ignites rather than stifles our creativity. Our robust cohort of Medicaid experts yoke together innovative ideas with proven approaches to create effective, successful programs.
Our dedicated Research and Policy team and national thought leaders put critical intelligence front and center through:
- Summaries of federal policies and guidance.
- Weekly updates on the latest federal, state, and private health care developments.
- Analyses of state budgets including health care and Medicaid spending.
- White papers and reports on topics such as Medicaid managed care and social determinants of health.
- Research into the impact of political and legislative outcomes on the health care industry.
- Topical articles and case studies about various aspects of Medicaid programs.
