NCAL names senior director of policy
Lilly Hummel has joined the National Center for Assisted Living as senior director of policy.
In this position, she is responsible for developing and promoting effective assisted living policies to advance the association's priorities and support its member communities and state affiliates. Hummel is to serve as a leading representative of NCAL's positions and policies before Congress, the executive branch, regulatory bodies, other stakeholder organizations and healthcare coalitions.
Previously, Hummel was a senior manager with Avalere Health, where she advised post-acute care and hospice providers, health systems and provider associations on how to navigate payment and delivery reforms such as accountable care organizations and bundled payments. She provided market analyses and assisted clients to understand trends and their strategic opportunities in response to changes in market dynamics and regulatory or legislative updates.
“We are very fortunate to have someone with Lilly's experience and diverse background join NCAL,” said Scott Tittle, executive director of NCAL. “Her past reimbursement, regulatory and legal work with healthcare providers will best position NCAL to guide our members through our rapidly expanding and changing sector.”
Before Avalere, Hummel was an analyst with the Government Accountability Office as well as a program assistant with both the Wisconsin Legislative Council and the Population Health Institute. She has a law degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School and a master of public affairs degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her undergraduate is from Carleton College in Northfield, MN.
