Katherine Murray, Principal
Applied Self-Direction

CDPAANYS is excited to welcome Katherine Murray, Principal at Applied Self-Direction, who will provide an overview of policy updates from Congress and the Biden administration that affect Medicaid, HCBS, and consumer-directed services–including the latest on Electronic Visit Verification (EVV). The session will also cover the impact of COVID-19 on demand for consumer-directed services, and analyze how the pandemic will continue to shape consumer-directed services in the years to come. Time for Q&A will be included.

Katherine Murray has deep expertise relating to regulatory compliance in Medicaid-funded self-direction programs, with a focus on labor and workforce issues. She is a nationally recognized expert on the Department of Labor’s Home Care Final Rule that revised Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requirements for home care workers, and she has consulted to numerous state Medicaid agencies and Medicaid managed care organizations on labor and workforce issues.
