The end of summer has brought some notable staffing changes in MassHealth, Executive Office of Administration and Finance, and the Division of Health Care Finance and Policy.
Congratulations to Robin Callahan, who has been named as the new deputy Medicaid director for policy and programs. With more than 16 years of experience working at MassHealth, Robin gracefully works on implementation of various federal grants and waivers, and will now play a significant role in the implementation of national health reform. We at Health Care For All value Robin’s spirit of collaboration and transparency, and look forward to continuing to work with her in her new leadership role
Thank you and good luck to Alda Rego, who served as the Office of Medicaid’s Chief Financial Officer for several years. We deeply appreciate Alda’s hard work and dedication to the MassHealth program and her ability to see the real people behind the numbers.
Candace Reddy recently received a well-deserved promotion to Director of Health Care Finance at the Executive Office of Administration and Finance. Candace knows the state’s health care budget inside and out, and plays an important role in health reform implementation. We are excited to continue working with Candace in her new role.
Health Care For All thanks Seena Perumal Carrington for her leadership as Acting Commissioner of the Division of Health Care Finance and Policy (DHCFP) for the past several months, especially for her tactful oversight of this summer’s health care cost trends hearings.
Áron Boros has been named the new commissioner of DHCFP, beginning September 15. Previously, Boros worked as Director of Federal Finance for the Office of Medicaid and for the law firm Foley Hoag. The staff of Health Care For All welcomes and looks forward to working closely with Commissioner Boros in his role at DHCFP.
