Clarissa Moon immigrated to the US from the Philippines in 1990. She graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks with a Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education.

Clarissa started her career with the State in 1995 as an Eligibility Technician with the Division of Public Assistance at the Bethel office. Her role evolved over the years from a Public Assistance Analyst to a Project Coordinator, a Program Coordinator, and eventually as the Field Services Support Unit Manager. In this position, she was responsible for overseeing the development and coordination of statewide operational processes and procedures that support the various programs administered by the Division including medical assistance programs.

At the end of 2014, Clarissa transferred to the Division of Health Care Services as a Medical Assistance Administrator to assist in the implementation of Alaska Medicaid Coordinated Care Initiative (AMCCI), a program that provides one-on-one case management to a selected population of Medicaid recipients. Clarissa also worked in the Accounting and Recovery Section and helped manage the Division’s third party liability contract.

In her position with the Tribal Section in the Commissioner’s Office, Clarissa will assist with oversight of tribal and non-tribal care coordination agreements, the referral processes of American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) between facilities, and maintain a record of retroactive claims for services provided at non-tribal sites to capture 100% federal match. She is one of the four statewide subject matter experts on Tribal policy and will liaison with inter and intra-departmental entities at both the state and federal government level as well as the provider community in regard to Tribal Medicaid health programs.
