Overview

Position is on the staff of a private, nonprofit government consulting firm located in McLean, VA. Work is sponsored by Federal Government departments and agencies, including the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Defense. Much, but not all, of our work entails supporting the following three programs within the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS): The Federally-Facilitated Marketplace, Medicare Advantage and the Medicare Shared Savings Program.

The principal federal agencies charged with implementing these programs require operational, analytical support to carry out their new duties. This position will help provide that support.

The successful applicant will become part of an analytical team that supports public health systems management projects.  Support will include both data analysis and process improvement.  That support includes understanding various large, complex data sets and performing analyses to answer specific questions about health benefits, cost sharing, enrollment, cost, payment, and risk adjustment.  In addition, duties will include working closely with information systems team members in specifying and designing automated tools to help answer repeat questions quickly and accurately.  Tasks will also include helping CMS establish processes to manage and oversee health plans, health care exchanges, and accountable care organizations.   

Qualifications

  • Degree in economics, operations research, statistics, healthcare, health policy evaluation, business management (with a quantitative focus) or related discipline.  One or more programming courses during college. Graduate degree desirable.
  • 5-7 years of experience in a healthcare analysis capacity, with healthcare data is required.
  • Strong quantitative skills using databases and spreadsheets, flow charts, and advanced analysis tools.
