Matilda Kruse currently serves as the Program Integrity Division Head within the American Samoa Medicaid Agency. Prior to assuming her current role in 2020, Ms. Kruse served as a Health Policy Analyst. Ms. Kruse worked closely with the Medicaid Director and senior leadership to recommend, develop, and expand access to local healthcare services and coverage in American Samoa, such as durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS), personal care services, and vision care. During the COVID-19 public health emergency, Ms. Kruse worked with the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) to draft a significant disaster State Planning Amendment to cover mandatory quarantine accommodations for Medicaid beneficiaries returning home after traveling for medically necessary care off-island during the Territory’s partial closure. Ms. Kruse’s passion and drive for bettering her community by improving access to sustainable quality healthcare pushed her to accept her current role as the Program Integrity Division Head.
