President Biden Nominates Brooks-LaSure to be CMS Administrator  

President Joe Biden announced his nomination of Chiquita Brooks-LaSure to serve as Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Brooks-LaSure previously served as a policy official with the Obama Administration and played an instrumental role in guiding the Affordable Care Act (ACA) through passage and implementation. If her nomination is confirmed by the Senate, Brooks-LaSure will take the helm of arguably the country’s most influential healthcare agency, and she will have the opportunity to make decisions that will greatly impact rural health.
