In April, Miranda joined America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) as Senior Vice President of State Affairs and Policy. In this role she is responsible for AHIP’s state policy and advocacy agenda, as well as AHIP’s political engagement strategy with state officials, regulatory agencies, and key policymakers.
Prior to joining AHIP, Miranda was the President and CEO of the Ohio Association of Health Plans (OAHP), the public voice for the health insurance industry in the state of Ohio, providing thought leadership on policy initiatives that drive improvements for access to high quality affordable health care for the more than 9 million Ohioans covered by OAHP’s 15-member health plans. She served in that role for more than 8+ years representing Ohio’s commercial, Medicaid managed care and Medicare Advantage member plans on a variety of legislative and regulatory issues before state policymakers and regulators.
Under Miranda’s leadership, OAHP became a recognized influential opinion leader, strategic thinker and problem solver with policymakers and health care stakeholders.
Prior to her work at OAHP, Miranda practiced law for over 10 years at Bricker & Eckler LLP in Columbus, Ohio where she represented insurance companies and trade association clients on various legal, regulatory and legislative matters before the Ohio General Assembly and the executive branch of State government.
Miranda served on former Governor George Voinovich’s personal staff and worked as a legal research assist from 1996-1998. In the summer of 1995, Miranda interned for then U.S. Senator Mike DeWine in Washington, D.C.
Miranda holds a Bachelor of Art in Political Science and History, Cum Laude, from Anderson University and a Juris Doctor, Magna Cum Laude from Capital University Law School.
