Medicaid Trends in Opioid and Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Usage and Identification of Best Practices to Address these Trends

In this workshop, facilitators will present data on national and state trends on the usage of opioids and MAT in the Medicaid arena. The facilitators will also explore with attendees how to identify and share best practices to reduce the overuse and abuse of opioids.

About the Workshop Leaders:
Joel Menges, MPA is the Chief Executive Officer at The Menges Group. Joel's career focus is on coordinated care programs for high-need populations. He has led hundreds of consulting engagements that involve the design, development, improvement or evaluation of coordinated care programs, including Medicaid initiatives in more than 30 states. Joel has worked extensively for Medicaid agencies and other state clients, for health plans, and for several trade associations. He has played a significant role in the design of many states' coordinated care programs and has assisted many health plans in entering new states and maintaining their presence in existing markets. Joel has also served as lead author of a wide array of policy papers that have shaped and expanded the role of coordinated care for high-need populations.

Joel has a strong and compassionate commitment to improving health status and quality of life for high-need populations, to using taxpayer funds as efficiently as possible, and to replacing traditional fee-for-service coverage models as well as ineffective coordinated care programs with highly effective coordinated care approaches. He obtained a Master’s Degree from Syracuse University and a Bachelor’s Degree from Kalamazoo College.

Amira Mouna is Vice President of Pharmacy Practice at The Menges Group. She is a founding partner of The Menges Group and has played a key role on the majority of the firm's projects throughout her tenure. She leads many of the firm's Medicaid prescription drug engagements and also works extensively on MCO proposals for state Medicaid contracts.

Amira holds her Master's Degree in Health Policy from the George Washington University. She served as a Public Health Fellow at the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy where she focused on research and policy development surrounding prescription drug abuse. Amira's work experience also includes data analysis at the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) and a health policy internship in the Office of Georgia Governor Nathan Deal during her undergraduate work at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
