The Maine CDC's Health Workforce Forum provided an informed and coordinated effort to identify and address current and projected health occupation shortages, pipeline/workforce development issues and systemic gaps/barriers to inform state policy and support planning decisions to ensure the effective delivery of health services in the state. The Maine CDC and Muskie School staff continued the Forum's work sessions to address infrastructure and system level initiatives.

State Solutions is a national program office for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation focused on maximizing enrollment in Medicare Savings Programs (e.g. QMB, SLMB, and QI1). This project provides technical assistance and policy analyses to State Solutions to identify and evaluate incentives created for increasing enrollment in the Medicare Savings Programs as a result of the implementation of the Medicare Part D drug benefit and low-income subsidies. The project will produce a series of issue briefs and develop and implement the agenda for a national invitational summit on this topic.
