InsideHealthPolicy turned to Faegre Drinker Consulting Principal Mike Adelberg for his thoughts on President Biden’s nomination of Chiquita Brooks-LaSure to head the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
In the article “Brooks-LaSure Would Bring Exchange Policy Chops To CMS,” InsideHealthPolicy gave an overview of Brooks-LaSure’s experience and noted that, if confirmed as the new CMS administrator, she would be the first Black woman to lead the agency.
Adelberg, a former CMS and Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (CCIIO) official who now leads Faegre Drinker Consulting’s health care strategy, said, “Chiquita is deep in the issues that surround Medicare, Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) — and liked by the people who have worked with her. Hard to argue with the pick.”
