Current Responsibility

Tia is a healthcare consultant and actuary with the New York office of Milliman.

Experience

Tia's Milliman work spans traditional actuarial projects, public health, government healthcare policy, and information technology.

Tia is dual qualified as an actuary and a public health professional. She most recently was an executive staff member and the director of data, research, and analytics for the Illinois Medicaid plan as the plan expanded for ACA and transitioned from fee for service to managed care. She was responsible for managing the plan's enterprise data resources to support plan management and the broader information needs of diverse stakeholders.

Tia has a particular expertise in healthcare risk identification, selection, and adjustment. In 2014, she served as an expert panel member for the National Quality Forum's Risk Adjustment and Socioeconomic Status Project.

Tia's interests include the financial, actuarial, information technology, and regulatory challenges of providing quality, integrated healthcare to medically and socially complex populations – populations such as medically complex children and Medicare-Medicaid dual eligible populations requiring long-term services and supports.

Presentations and publications

Tia is a frequent writer, speaker, and moderator. In addition, she frequently volunteers to review project applications and publications.

Her doctoral dissertation, prepared in 2010-2011, "Controlling Indirect Selection under Healthcare Reform," examined the potential for risk selection and mitigation in ACA marketplaces.
