This position requires strong quantitative, analytical, leadership, management, and decision-making skills.

  • Develop supporting payment models and supporting requirements for each payer
  • Determine waiver requirements and support the development of requests as applicable
  • Develop and manage implementation plans including reporting requirement specifications
  • Work with Senior Staff in developing, implementing, updating, and amending payment methodologies designed to reduce per capita costs, and increase quality of care
  • Design, conduct, evaluate, and report results of analytical studies related to innovative population-based payment system matters and other key health policy issues related to TCOC Model.

The position provides an extraordinary opportunity for a highly motivated individual interested in promoting equity and efficiency, cost containment, improved access, and improved quality of care across the healthcare delivery spectrum in Maryland.
