The successful candidate will track health insurance legislation and when requested by the General Assembly direct insurance mandate studies with the assistance of contractual actuaries or staff. The successful candidate will also manage special policy project analyses conducted by MHCC staff and private contractors focusing on healthcare spending, population health challenges, access/utilization, and payment adequacy questions using the APCD and other data sources such as various federal claim data systems and surveys (MEPS-Insurance Component, American Community Survey).
