The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration announced in a release Monday the appointment of a state Medicaid Director.
Allison Taylor, who has served as interim director for the Medicaid program since May, will work under FSSA Secretary Jennifer Walthall. Before holding the interim director position, Taylor worked as the agency's general counsel beginning in 2015, according to the release.
She advised healthcare clients at Indianapolis law firm Hall Render before joining FSSA, and before that, served as the policy and legislative director for the Indiana Academy of Family Physicians.
Taylor is a graduate of DePauw University and IU's Robert H. McKinney School of Law.
“Allison’s deep expertise in Indiana health policy and law, as well as her commitment to collaborative relationships and patient-centered program design make her the ideal person to lead Indiana’s Medicaid programs,” Walthall said in the release.
