According to the Washington Post, President Biden is going to nominate Chiquita Brooks-LaSure to be the Administrator of CMS.
Ms. Brooks-LaSure graduated from Princeton University in 1996 and earned a Masters of Public Policy from Georgetown University in 1999, before beginning her career as a program examiner and Medicaid analyst at the Office of Management & Budget (OMB). She has worked for the Democratic staff on the Ways & Means Committee in the House of Representatives, working on issues like the ACA and the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA). Ms. Brooks-LaSure moved on to CMS, where she worked in the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (CCCIIO), leading ACA implementation on insurance reform. Like many other Biden appointees, Ms. Brooks-LaSure is a veteran of the Obama administration.
“We are thrilled that Chiquita Brooks-LaSure has been nominated to lead CMS. She understands the inner workings of government and has a deep appreciation for health advocacy,” said National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization President and CEO Edo Banach.
“Key staff among NHPCO’s leadership congratulate their former colleague Ms. Brooks-LaSure and enthusiastically support the administration’s choice to lead the Medicare and Medicaid programs.”
