Michael Heifetz, who resigned this month as state Medicaid director, is joining the consulting firm Michael Best Strategies.

Heifetz will lead the team’s state and federal healthcare practice, splitting time between its state offices and Washington, D.C. Karen Timberlake, former secretary of the state Department of Health Services and former director of the UW-Madison Population Health Institute, joined Michael Best last year.

Heifetz, who became Medicaid director in October 2016, previously served as state budget director and worked in government affairs for Dean Clinic and SSM Health of Wisconsin.
