In January 2011, Ms. Frescatore joined Governor Cuomo’s Office as Deputy Secretary for Health and Deputy Director of Health Care Redesign where she has been responsible for the development of health care policy, and coordination of the State’s implementation of federal health care reform, including the Health Insurance Exchange.

Ms. Frescatore has also served as State Medicaid Director and Deputy Commissioner of the Office of Health Insurance Programs in the New York State Department of Health responsible for Medicaid, Family Health Plus, Child Health Plus and regulation of the managed care industry.
