Brooks-LaSure Stresses Health Equity as CMS Considers Future Demonstrations

CMS will refocus and redouble its efforts on health equity and whole-person health outcomes as the Biden administration evaluates ongoing and potential programs and initiatives, CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure said during an Aug. 12 webcast hosted by Health Affairs. During her remarks, she also hinted that the agency is interested in ensuring a level playing field between fee-for-service Medicare and Medicare Advantage.

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) — which is now 10 years old — has refreshed its strategy to focus on equity along with value-based care and person-centered care, Brooks-LaSure explained. She and other CMS officials laid out their CMMI strategy in a Health Affairs blog post published the same day as the webcast.
