Aimee Lashbrook specializes in publicly funded health policy research and analysis, Medicaid managed care procurement, program compliance, and program implementation. She has an in-depth understanding of federal and state Medicaid policy, Medicare Advantage program rules and annual business cycle, and integrated Medicare-Medicaid policy. Her strategic thinking and research and writing skills turn complex issues into actionable opportunities.

At Health Management Associates, Aimee works closely with clients to support new business strategies, including launch of Medicare Advantage plans and Medicaid managed care procurement. She leads Medicare Advantage and Special Needs Plan application assistance and other regulatory filings, provides project management, and conducts operational assessments, audit preparedness, procurement strategy and planning, response development, and mock scoring.

Aimee has helped state Medicaid programs design and implement coverage expansions, including development of request for proposals, administrative rules and program policies, plan reporting requirements, and plan readiness reviews. She tracks state and federal policy developments, and each year, she co-authors the Medicaid budget survey report for KFF, formerly Kaiser Family Foundation.

Aimee came to HMA from a large Blue Cross Blue Shield plan, where she monitored and analyzed federal and state Medicaid and Medicare policy. Her analysis informed enterprise strategy, drove business decisions, and guided requirements development and implementation plans. She drafted policy positions for Medicaid expansion, Medicare Advantage, and payment reform that were coordinated across the enterprise and used to support successful advocacy strategy during a period of rapid change. She also served as company liaison to industry trade groups and external stakeholders.

Aimee earned her master’s degree in health services administration from the University of Michigan School of Public Health, and her law degree and certificate of health law from the Loyola University Chicago School of Law. She earned her bachelor’s degree in political science and English from Albion College in Michigan.
