Senate Finance Committee Votes to Advance CMS Acting Administrator Tavenner

Posted on 4/23/2013 by NTOCC ®

Today, the Senate Finance Committee voted to approve President Obama’s nominee, Marilyn Tavenner, to oversee the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Fourteen bipartisan members of the panel gave voice vote approval to her nomination. Up next, Tavenner must be confirmed by the full Senate; however that vote has not been scheduled, and the timeline remains unclear.

Tavenner took over as CMS Administrator Berwick’s successor and has been serving as the Acting Administrator of CMS since December 2011. She has spent much of that time implementing many aspects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, of which many important (and controversial) aspects are due for full implementation in January, 2014.
