New MaineCare Medical Director Announced

The Office of MaineCare this week welcomed Fran Jensen, MD, MS, as MaineCare’s Medical Director beginning on Monday, September 14.  She has extensive Medicaid experience and has held many roles focused on delivery system transformation and patient-centered care throughout her career. 

Dr. Jensen previously served as the Deputy Director for the State Innovations Group at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI), has worked for CMS, was a Medical Officer with the US Public Health Service, and has directly served individuals who are homeless and in recovery from substance use disorder in her practice.  During COVID-19, she has worked contact tracing and serving individuals with COVID-19 at the Lord Baltimore Triage-Respite-Isolation Center. 

Dr. Jensen has ties to Maine, as well: she is a graduate of Bowdoin College, and also served as the Project Officer for Maine for the CMMI State Innovation Model (SIM) grant from 2013 to 2017.  She currently resides in Baltimore and will begin work remotely, with plans to transition to Maine full time in summer 2021.
