PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon has a new state Medicaid director.

The Oregon Health Authority has named Lori Coyner to the position. She’ll oversee all Medicaid policy changes and will be Oregon’s point of contact with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Coyner joined OHA in early 2013 as the director of accountability and quality and was promoted in 2014 to director of health analytics. Prior to that, she worked as a biostatistician at the Oregon Health Care Quality Corp.

She replaces Judy Mohr-Peterson, who this summer became director of Hawaii’s Medicaid program.
