(I know, I tried to follow some of Campbell's threads, but I didn't find anything and decided to just ask.)
Before Milliman, Ms Sawhney was employed by Illinois Medicaid. It was from this position that she wrote one or maybe several articles about the State pension plans, from the perspective of being a sponsoring taxpayer, plan contributor, and future beneficiary.

I believe it was her PhD thesis, to obtain her Doctorate in Public Health, that was my favorite article of hers. It dealt with risk adjustment topics (for example, income level) that could be important to ACA risk adjustment but were outside current methods.

Much more detail is available on the Milliman website here http://us.milliman.com/Consultants/?cid=83539. Or just google Tia Goss Sawhney biobraphy and go to the first link.

Summary of her thesis:

Quote:
SUMMARY

This paper is intended to help regulators understand and be bettered prepared to address
indirect selection under healthcare reform. Specifically, the paper discusses the general concept of
selection, describes the potential indirect selection techniques under healthcare reform, discusses the
public policy implications of such selection, and suggests a range of potential regulatory interventions
and monitoring. The paper relies upon original, conceptual diagrams to explain concepts without
mathematical formulas. The paper is supported by “Health Insurance Risk Adjustment: The Income
Effect” (Appendix), a stand-alone paper which examines risk adjustment from a conceptual and
mathematical perspective.
