Ms. Selter has worked with 9 of the 11 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Financial Alignment Demonstrations for Medicare-Medicaid Eligibles, commonly referred to as the Dual Eligibles demonstrations, and will share lessons learned and best practices that can be used as models for other states.

“The rapid growth in the number of Medicaid beneficiaries has put a heavy resource and financial strain on Medicaid enterprises,” said Bruce Caswell, President of MAXIMUS. “As a leading provider of Medicaid administrative services for 20 states, MAXIMUS looks forward to sharing our insights for how states can improve the effectiveness of their programs while meeting the needs of a growing beneficiary population.”
