Bowser reappoints Wayne M. Turnage to Department of Health Care Finance

Mayor Muriel E. Bowser has reappointed Wayne M. Turnage as the Director of the Department of Health Care Finance (DHCF). Mr. Turnage serves as the manager of the agency and the chief advocate for the annual legislative and agency budget priorities. He works closely with the Mayor’s office and City Council to address the concerns of Medicaid stakeholders and the citizens of the District.  Director Turnage was appointed to the position by Mayor Gray in February 2011. During his tenure, Director Turnage has spearheaded efforts to reform several of DHCF’s major provider reimbursement systems, established a program of accountability for the agency’s redesigned managed care program, and, more recently, organized and oversaw the implementation of a plan to reduce fraud in the Medicaid home care program – reducing those costs by nearly $11 million per month.
