Hugh Long trained in corporate finance, business economics, and law. He teaches health care fiscal management and payment systems in Tulane's MHA degree program, and served as an adjunct professor of law at Tulane from 1994 to 2013. He specializes in the application of corporate finance techniques to nonprofit private-sector healthcare organizations and analysis of provider responses to Medicare and Medicaid payment mechanisms. During the adoption/implementation of Medicare Inpatient Prospective Payment System, Long served as a special advisor on health policy to former U.S. Rep. W. Henson Moore, and former U.S. Sen. David Durenberger. He was ad hoc advisor on health care financing to the health subcommittees of both the Ways and Means Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Finance Committee of the U.S. Senate, and has testified before these committees. He served both as a ProPAC commissioner and a MedPAC commissioner, providing policy advice on Medicare to the U.S. Congress. Long was also on the Medicare Geographic Classification Review Board under three U.S. presidents, reviewing and modifying the geographic status of hospitals for Medicare payment purposes, and chaired the board for six years. Long is the immediate past chair of the Governing Board of Touro Infirmary, a 300-bed acute-care hospital, part of the five-hospital LCMC System in New Orleans, and also serves on that system’s governing board.
