- Excerpt from CMS Getting New Leadership Roles:

Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Burwell announced a series of management changes designed to strengthen the Obama Administration’s implementation of the ACA. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will now have a new Principal Deputy Administrator for agency-wide policy and operational program coordination, a single Marketplace Chief Executive Officer, and a Marketplace Chief Technology Officer. Andy Slavitt, most recently the Group Executive Vice President for Optum, will be joining the agency as the Principal Deputy Administrator. One of the intended consequences of the recent management moves is to establish a visible leader, in charge of overseeing all aspects of the health insurance marketplaces (exchanges).
