As a program and policy expert with over 20 years of experience in Medicaid and dual eligible program and policy design, Meryl has applied her skills to virtually every angle of serving this complex and vulnerable population. Starting in the State of Massachusetts in 1992, she developed and implemented the first value-based MCO purchasing contract in the country and went on to lead the New England States Consortium on Dual Eligibles – one of the original pre-cursors to integrated care for this population. Meryl helps states and health plans deliver value to the Medicaid-only, dually- eligible populations through strategy, proposal development, program development, and program implementation support with a focus on care management and quality measurement design. Meryl’s value is clear: she knows the business from many perspectives, she is dedicated to meeting client needs, and she loves her work.

Personal experience ignited Meryl’s passion for public sector healthcare. Her interest in the Medicaid population led her to a career where she has consistently helped clients deliver quality care that is also cost-effective. Meryl has contributed to multiple, high-profile winning bids for national companies, such as Value Options and Aetna, as well as smaller community-based plans like Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island. Meryl helped Connecticut design their PCMH program and is now assisting Rhode Island in developing their Financial Alignment Demonstration (FAD) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

A seasoned veteran in the industry, Meryl thoroughly enjoys supporting her clients and will skillfully engage your team to review data-driven, research-based, and creative options to meet your needs across a broad range of topical areas.
