HealthLeaders Media

Another contentious Senate confirmation hearing may be in the works over the new leadership at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

Senate Republicans have signaled that they may challenge the Obama Administration’s nomination Thursday of Andy Slavitt to be administrator at CMS. Slavitt has been with CMS for a year, and has served as acting administrator since February, when Marilyn Tavenner resigned from the job she’d held for 21 months.
