About Jenna

Jenna Libersky focuses on evaluating and promoting best practices in Medicaid managed care, integrated delivery systems, and long-term services and supports. Her expertise includes Medicaid program design and oversight, qualitative research, and technical assistance. 

Libersky currently directs a multi-faceted technical assistance project for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that aims to strengthen federal and state oversight of Medicaid managed care programs, health homes, and integrated delivery systems for vulnerable populations. She leads an evaluation of Medicaid managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS) programs that use Section 1115 demonstration and other federal authorities. She has provided technical assistance to state officials charged with designing Financial Alignment Initiatives for dual Medicare-Medicaid eligibles and reporting Medicaid data to CMS through the Medicaid Statistical Information System. Her recent publications have shed light on managed care rate setting, value-based purchasing in nursing facilities, variation in state design of MLTSS, and quality reporting. 

Before joining Mathematica, Libersky analyzed health policy and finance at the New York City Independent Budget Office. She holds an M.P.H. from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
