ANA Lauds Nomination of Registered Nurse to Lead Medicare & Medicaid

The American Nurses Association (ANA) commends the White House for its decision to nominate Marilyn Tavenner, MHA, BSN, RN, to permanently head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Tavenner, a former ICU nurse, has served as chief executive officer of the Hospital Corporation of America and was Virginia's secretary of Health and Human Resources under then-Governor Tim Kaine. She joined CMS in February 2010 and became acting administrator in December 2011.

"Marilyn is more than prepared to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), an agency that touches the life of every American through the Medicare, Medicaid, and children's health insurance programs, promotes quality standards, and develops policy innovations intended to expand patient access to high quality healthcare," says ANA President Karen A. Daley, PhD, RN, FAAN.

"We at ANA believe that her expertise and experience will provide CMS with the leadership needed to guide our healthcare system during this time of great change. We urge a swift confirmation process so that CMS can continue its work to improve the health care of individuals and families nationwide."
