Rachel Rosales

Senior Policy Analyst, State Consumer Health Advocacy Program

Rachel Rosales serves as a Senior Policy Analyst in the State Consumer Health Advocacy Program at Community Catalyst, providing policy research and analysis for state consumer health advocates as well as Community Catalyst colleagues, with a focus on Medicaid policy issues. She collaborates with Community Catalyst’s Together for Medicaid to strengthen and defend the Medicaid program.

Prior to joining Community Catalyst, Rachel served as an Associate Program Manager in Finance and Compliance for Massachusetts’s Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment program, Massachusetts’s Medicaid 1115 Waiver. In this role, she provided financial analyses to develop innovative ways to integrate and coordinate health care. Rachel’s passion for defending Medicaid and advocating for equitable access stems from her previous role as a patient advocate. She saw firsthand how patients from marginalized communities disproportionately faced accessibility issues. 

Rachel holds a bachelor’s degree in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention from the University of Southern California and a Master of Public Health degree in Health Policy and Law from Boston University School of Public Health.

Community Catalyst works to ensure consumer interests are represented wherever important decisions about health and the health system are made: in communities, courtrooms, statehouses and on Capitol Hill.
