Molly facilitates and organizes educational resources to inform AHCA members on various trends and changes in Medicaid programs as they pertain to long-term care, including strategies for rate adequacy and provider protection advocacy opportunities. Prior to joining AHCA, Molly worked in the Education and Health Policy department at the American Chiropractic Association, focusing on state licensure requirements, continuing education, integrated healthcare settings, and reimbursement documentation requirements. She also led advocacy efforts at the state and federal level for full inclusion of chiropractic in Medicare and the costs-savings advantage of including chiropractic as a non-invasive treatment for Medicaid beneficiaries. Molly began her career as a legislative aide in former Congressman Bruce Braley’s office, serving as a key contact and staff liaison for a wide range of healthcare organizations, providers, and patient advocacy groups. She also reviewed, briefed, and advised the congressman on bill sponsorship requests and proposed legislation.
