David Rogers is an expert in Medicaid reform policy and programs, and knows how to take a great idea and make it work. He is innovative and strategic in his approach to the business of public healthcare, guiding states, health plans and providers in recognizing new opportunities and realizing results.
David has the distinction of advancing big, bold reform of two very different state Medicaid programs – Florida and Idaho. As assistant deputy secretary for the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, David returned to the Medicaid program in 2012 to lead the transition of more than 3 million Medicaid recipients and 100,000 providers to a new managed care program under the state’s medical assistance 1115 wavier program. The new program built on a previous Medicaid reform 1115 demonstration that used market-based approaches to improve value in the Medicaid delivery system. By every measure, the transition was a success, resulting in the highest levels of service quality and recipient satisfaction in program history.
As Idaho’s Medicaid director, David was an architect of cutting-edge Medicaid reform known as Modernizing Medicaid: Value-Based Reform. In 2006, Idaho became one of the first states in the nation to implement changes under authority granted by the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005. Originally designed as an 1115 waiver, David ultimately crafted and garnered federal approval of a series of state plan amendments allowing the state greater flexibility in benefit design through use of benchmark benefit packages, cost-sharing and innovative incentives designed to promote healthy behaviors and personal responsibility.
A pioneer in population health management and consumer-directed care in the public and private sectors, David led the largest and most renowned Medicaid disease management initiative in the country, and he represented one of the first states to participate in the National Cash and Counseling Demonstration. With deep roots in long-term services and supports, David has served on the board of the National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities.
David earned his bachelor’s degree and a graduate certificate in health services administration from Florida State University.
