Kimberley Fox, MPA has extensive experience in program evaluation, state policy analyses, and health services research focusing on improving healthcare access and quality of care for the poor and under-served. Her areas of policy expertise include Medicaid/CHIP, quality measurement and public reporting, patient experience of care, child health, and telehealth. Previously, she has led evaluations of innovative value-based purchasing strategies including Maine’s CHIPRA quality demonstration grant to improve health outcomes for children on Medicaid/CHIP and children in foster care with special needs and the MaineCare Health Homes initiative to assess how practice transformation and payment changes help improve the quality and cost of care for adults and children. She has also conducted policy analyses of strategies to improve access to care including expansion of premium assistance programs, pay-for-performance programs, state health reform including individual and small group market reforms, state pharmacy assistance programs, and Medicare Savings Programs with the implementation of Medicare Part D. She currently is evaluating the use of telehealth in school-based settings, and methods for increasing transparency of price and quality information and consumer engagement in health care decisions. Prior to moving to Maine, she worked at the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy, Baruch College’s School of Public Policy, the Medical and Health Research Association, the Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University, and the United Hospital Fund of NYC.

Kim spends her time outside of work enjoying time with her family and friends, leading an acapella singing group, and enjoying Maine’s beautiful coastline sailing, kayaking and hiking.
