What Can Insurers Expect From Brooks-LaSure at Helm of CMS?

If Chiquita Brooks-LaSure is confirmed as the next CMS administrator, the managed care industry can expect to see a thoughtful and experienced leader helming an agency that wields vast regulatory power over some of insurers’ most lucrative business lines, industry experts say. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that every move taken by Brooks-LaSure, HHS secretary nominee Xavier Becerra or the Biden administration at large will be completely industry-friendly.

Dan Mendelson, founder of the consulting firm Avalere Health, suggests that “the health insurance industry can expect her to look carefully at the issues before acting; she’s not an impetuous person in any respect. That thoughtfulness is pretty much a hallmark of her operating style.”
