About

With a single bright idea — that true collaboration with a diverse team of seasoned healthcare leaders delivers better results — Speire Healthcare Strategies was born. A boutique consulting firm, we bring three decades of experience leading Medicaid programs, developing health policy and consulting to solve complex business challenges. We blend our combined federal, state and private sector experience to provide clients with a holistic view of, and thoughtful insights into, the healthcare industry and its complexities.

Our name comes from the Gaelic word for sky, light and horizon, reflecting our unique ability to anticipate what’s coming and help clients craft innovative solutions in response to changing policies and market demands. National experts in Medicaid and public and private healthcare programs, our insights help our clients increase access, manage costs and improve market position.

We draw from our team’s experience in Medicaid, health insurance marketplaces, managed care, health reform, value-based purchasing, government programs, strategy and operations. Our partners served at the highest levels of state and government agencies and consulting, holding executive roles in Medicaid agencies, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and top-tier management consulting firms. Members of our team are regularly tapped to play leadership roles in critical healthcare initiatives, including a current commissioner for the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC) and former leadership roles with the National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD).

Based in the thriving healthcare community of Nashville, we have a strong presence and deep relationships in Washington, D.C. and markets across the country. This allows us to provide clients with timely information on emerging policy trends and changes, valuable insights into program operations and local perspective.
