Since joining HMA in 2009, Mary Goddeeris has centered her work on provider reimbursement for the Medicaid and uninsured populations, with a strong focus on the hospital community.
Working with hospital providers in over 15 states, Mary has contributed to the modeling and implementation of Medicaid and disproportionate share financing structures largely funded through provider assessments, intergovernmental transfers and certified public expenditures. Most recently, her efforts have centered on working with hospitals to ensure access to care for the Medicaid and uninsured populations as the health care landscape changes in the face of health care reform.
In addition to her work with hospitals, Mary has also contributed to numerous projects for community health centers by analyzing the health care needs of a population. These needs assessments play a key role in the federal approval process for Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and FQHC Look-Alike designations, and for New Access Point awards, which are determined based on the provision of care to some of the nation’s most underserved populations.
Mary holds a master’s degree in economics from The Ohio State University and a bachelor’s degree in economics and statistics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
