Former CMS administrator Seema Verma joins Monogram Health’s board -

Seema Verma was the CEO of health policy firm SVC when she was tapped by the Trump Administration to act as administrator of CMS, a position she held from March 2017 to January of this year. She joins Monogram Health’s board of directors as the Nashville-based kidney care company looks to expand its national footprint. Monogram’s board chair, former U.S. Senator Bill Frist, says Verma’s “work at CMS to improve kidney disease patients’ access to high-quality, coordinated care aligns directly” with the company’s purpose. While at CMS, Verma initiated the Kidney Care Choices (KCC) payment model for Medicare beneficiaries with Stage 4-5 chronic kidney disease (CKD) and ESRD. That five-year program, introduced in 2020, is under review by the Biden Administration and has a tentative starting date of January 1, 2022.
