The office responsible for testing Medicare and Medicaid payment innovations will have a new leader the week of April 9, HHS Secretary Alex Azar said.
Azar April 6 named Adam Boehler, the founder and chief executive officer of a California health company, to head the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation or CMMI. The CMMI is the Medicare agency’s test lab for health-care payment and service delivery models. According to the office’s website, Amy Bassano is the acting leader of the CMMI.
Boehler, who will also be a deputy administrator in the Department of Health and Human Services, founded Landmark Health, a company focused on delivering medical services to chronically ill patients. He was also the founder of Avalon Health Solutions, a laboratory benefit management services company, the HHS said in the announcement.
Azar announced that Judy Stecker started work April 5 as the assistant secretary for public affairs. She previously worked at the American Enterprise Institute. The HHS leader also said former Pfizer and CVS Health executive Dan Best is on the job as senior adviser to the secretary for drug pricing reform.
In addition, the HHS secretary said Jeff Rosenberg started last week as the principal deputy assistant secretary for public affairs, and Heather Flick is acting assistant secretary for administration.
