McLean, VA – May 6, 2021 – CNSI, a leading provider of innovative, healthcare technology-driven products and solutions that improve health outcomes and reduce healthcare costs, announced today that Verlon Johnson, Senior Vice President for Corporate Strategy, has been appointed by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) to a three-year term as a Commissioner to the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC).
The 17-member MACPAC was established in 2009 as a non-partisan advisory commission to advise Congress on issues related to Medicaid and CHIP policies on access and payment. The Commission meets seven times annually to review data, make recommendations, and bring “their professional and personal experiences related to health care for low-income individuals, rather than as representatives of specific fields, associations, or organizations.”
“I am passionate about Medicaid and enjoy my role at CNSI in working to help states leverage technology driven products and solutions to improve health outcomes and reduce healthcare costs,” Johnson shared. “Serving as a MACPAC commissioner and humbly offering my expertise and experience to our policy makers and implementers gives me an even greater opportunity to make a positive impact on a program I love.”
Johnson’s three-year term will run through April of 2024.
