The Wyoming Department of Health recently announced the selection of candidates to fill two key leadership positions with the department’s Medicaid and related programs. Lee Grossman will be the new state Medicaid agent and senior administrator of the Division of Healthcare Financing. Longtime employee Jan Stall has been serving in these roles on an interim basis since last January and intends to retire in March. Dr. Paul Johnson has been chosen as the new Wyoming Medicaid medical director to replace Dr. James Bush, who retired from the role earlier this month after many years. Grossman was chosen after a hiring process that directly involved Governor Mark Gordon and WDH Director Stefan Johansson.

Grossman currently serves as administrator of the Home and Community Based Services Section of the Division of Healthcare Financing within WDH and will transition into his new role next month. He’s been working for the department since 2011 in various relevant positions. In addition he’s participated in a national program for emerging Medicaid leaders and is a current member of the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services. Grossman holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Nebraska and a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Wyoming. Johnson will begin with the department as Medicaid medical director April 1. He’s currently part of the Ivinson Medical Group in Laramie specializing in otolaryngology (head and neck surgery). Johnson grew up in Laramie, earned his bachelor’s degree from Baylor University and his medical degree from the University of Washington. Johnson completed his residency in otolaryngology at Columbia University. He recently completed his master of public health degree at Johns Hopkins University with an emphasis on health finance and management.
