About Mostly Medicaid
We began with one simple concept in mind - think of Medicaid as a massive industry that just happens to have the least of these as its customers. Besides the healthcare services provided to Medicaid enrollees, there are hundreds of thousands of people that process claims, build software, consult with hospitals - just to name a few segments. Those people need services and products to help them do their jobs, increase their revenues and improve their skills.
And that's where Mostly Medicaid comes in.
Because most firms in the Medicaid industry don't treat the industry like a business - and we do - we are uniquely positioned to impact actual, meaningful change in the space. We have built a brand and practice that professionals trust to bring non-biased information and recommendations to them.
