With 30 years of senior executive healthcare experience, Glenn Stanton is an expert in improving the quality of and access to publicly-funded services for persons with behavioral health and long-term services and supports (LTSS) needs, including those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. He’s led the provision of direct services, state and federal health policy, and business development in the specialty managed healthcare arena. Whether expanding a health plan’s Medicaid business or assisting service providers in navigating new models of care or regulatory requirements, Glenn’s focus remains on the individuals needing assistance.
Proficient in business development and strategic problem solving through team facilitation and consensus building, Glenn brings a unique combination of perspectives to any project. He has served as CEO of a direct service provider working with mental health, intellectual/developmental disability, and substance use disorder services; director of a state health and human services department responsible for designing performance measurement systems and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Block Grants; and director of the Disabled and Elderly Health Programs Group at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Through these roles, Glenn developed expertise in all aspects of Medicaid RFP proposal strategy and development, Medicaid waiver development, Medicaid regulatory compliance, Medicaid business development strategy for health plans, healthcare policy development and writing, and peer and recovery services, including self-directed care, person-centered planning, and stakeholder engagement.
Glenn joined HMA most recently from Magellan Health, where he served as senior vice president of business development for public and emerging markets. He led new business development for public sector governmental contracts, including partnership building at the state and local levels, strategic messaging and positioning, RFP proposal development, and new product development. Glenn played an integral role in contributing to the company’s growth by leading Magellan’s expansion in the Medicaid behavioral health marketplace and playing a key role in expanding into adjacent markets, including Magellan’s first contract in the Managed LTSS market and three awarded contracts in publicly-funded services for youth in child welfare. Glenn’s efforts resulted in the award of state Medicaid contracts valued at more than $1.5 billion, combined with a longstanding positive impact on federal disability policy.
While at CMS, Glenn provided senior leadership and executive direction for the federal Medicaid program devoted to the nation’s disabled and elderly citizens. He also provided leadership and support for former President Bush’s New Freedom initiative and for CMS’s self-directed healthcare initiative Independence Plus. This initiative resulted in a new Medicaid waiver template for self-directed care for persons with disabilities, making it easier for states to submit payment approval to create the services needed.
At the Michigan Department of Community Health, Glenn led the transformation of performance measurement and quality improvement programming for all publicly-funded community mental health services through development and implementation of a quality management system for Medicaid mental health, substance abuse, and developmental disability services under sections 1915(b) and 1915(c) of the Social Security Act.
Glenn earned his master’s degree in community psychology from Michigan State University and his bachelor’s degree in psychology from State University of New York at Buffalo.
Glenn and his wife Susan have a love for great food and wine, and depending upon the season, you’ll find them hiking or boating in the north Georgia mountains.
