Jenna Libersky focuses on evaluating and promoting best practices in Medicaid managed care, integrated delivery systems, and long-term services and supports. Her expertise includes Medicaid program design and oversight, qualitative research, and technical assistance.

Currently, Libersky is helping Iowa redesign its system of home and community-based services (HCBS) in response to findings from a 2022 Mathematica evaluation. For the past decade, she also supported and later directed a multifaceted technical assistance project for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that sought to strengthen federal and state oversight of Medicaid managed care programs, health homes, and integrated delivery systems for vulnerable populations. Previously, Libersky led a multiyear evaluation of Medicaid managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS) programs that use Section 1115 demonstration and other federal authorities. She provided technical assistance to state officials charged with designing Financial Alignment Initiatives for dually eligible Medicare-Medicaid beneficiaries and reporting Medicaid data to CMS through the Medicaid Statistical Information System. She has also conducted qualitative research and published on variation in state design of MLTSS, value-based purchasing in nursing facilities and HCBS, managed care rate setting, and quality reporting.

Before joining Mathematica, Libersky analyzed health policy and finance at the New York City Independent Budget Office. She holds an M.P.H. from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
