There is a direct correlation between the number of people enrolled in Medicaid, the amount of funding flowing into the program, and the growth of Myers and Stauffer. The simple truth is with an ever-increasing and aging population, skyrocketing costs in the medical industry, and new technology advances, the need for the specialized skills of Myers and Stauffer soon became more and more apparent.
We began providing rate setting services for the state of Indiana and opened an office there in 1982. In 1984, we opened an office in Denver, Colorado to perform the state’s cost report audits. Boise, ID, Harrisburg, PA, and Kansas City, MO all followed. More and more health care experts were added to the team. The type of work we were doing for our clients was expanding, as well. Rate setting. Cost report audits. Program integrity. Myers and Stauffer’s growth, in office locations, employees and services offered was steady, consistent, and expected.
One of the main reasons for this rapid expansion was a decision made early on at the founding of the company. Myers and Stauffer would only accept state and federal government clients. There would be no conflicts of interest with private or public health care organizations.
