Impact of the New Administration on Medicaid

Mercer's Dedication to Keeping our Clients Informed

The outcomes of last month’s elections will certainly result in changes to the rules that govern/impact the health care system as a whole, including the Medicaid program. Although the details of those changes remain uncertain today, we want to assure our clients that we are actively exploring the possible changes that lie ahead and building the tools and resources our clients will need to assess these new policy directions. In the next few weeks and throughout the transition period post-inaguration, we will provide informational resources and updates. In the meantime, please contact us with your questions and concerns via email.
