Eric Morris studies Medicaid programs and programs that provide services to people with disabilities, with a focus on efforts to improve employment outcomes.
Since joining Mathematica in 2010, Morris has worked on a range of projects in Medicaid, disability, and employment and income support. He is currently evaluating a program to improve employment outcomes among people with significant disabilities. For a previous project, he evaluated an intervention model for state vocational rehabilitation agencies to use with beneficiaries receiving Social Security Disability Insurance. He also monitored the progress of states that received Money Follows the Person grants, which were intended to help transfer long-term residents of institutions to home- and community-based settings, and he created a benefit-cost analysis of Youth Transition Demonstration projects. In addition, Morris works on projects related to Medicaid data and programs, including an investigation into the usability of Medicaid encounter data from behavioral health organizations. He also lead the development of metrics to monitor the implementation of Medicaid waiver demonstrations.
Morris holds an M.S.P.P.M from the Heinz College School of Public Policy and Management at Carnegie Mellon University.
