Michael P. Strazzella, practice group leader in Buchanan’s Federal Government Relations section, was quoted in an article titled, “Trump Victory Raises Big Questions For Medicaid Expansion, MA Insurers” which published in Medicare Advantage News.

Michael Strazzella, practice group leader for federal government relations and co-head of the Washington, D.C., law office of Buchanan, Ingersoll & Rooney, points out that Trump is big on promoting “economic drivers in empowering consumers” and his intent is to grow the job market so that people “move off the Medicaid rolls.” As for Medicaid MCOs, “they’re going to have to work with their state Medicaid departments to ensure that there’s appropriate reimbursement for the services that they’re going to provide and to ensure that the services are there for the patients,” he suggests.
