CMMI Director Selected to Oversee Value-Based Care Transformation at HHS

Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar has announced that Adam Boehler, current director of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation, will also serve as senior advisor for value-based transformation and innovation.

This marks the fourth senior adviser appointed to oversee Secretary Azar’s four key priorities in his transformation agenda: combating the opioid crisis, lowering the high cost of prescription drugs, addressing the cost and availability of health insurance, and transforming the health care system to a value-based system. 

The other three departmental priorities will be led by Jim Parker, senior advisor to the secretary for health reform and director of the Office of Health Reform; Dan Best, senior advisor for drug pricing reform; and Brett Giroir, MD, senior advisor for opioid and mental health policy.

CHA looks forward to its continued work with HHS staff on legislative and regulatory priorities.
