Andrew M. "Andy" Slavitt

Former Acting Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)

Andrew M. "Andy" Slavitt is a former Acting Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a position he held from March 2015 to January 2017.

Andy has decades of private and public sector leadership in health care. Over his career, he has shaped some of the most significant and successful initiatives in health care impacting millions of Americans and the face of the health care system. For the last two years, he served as the Acting Administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) under President Obama. In that role, he oversaw programs that provide access to quality health care for 140 million Americans, including Medicaid, Medicare, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and the Health Insurance Marketplace.

Slavitt's tenure at CMS was marked by the successful execution of large new programs-- the Affordable Care Act, the significant shift to pay-for-value payment models, and the implementation of MACRA. Under his leadership, the U.S. health care system saw record reductions in the uninsured rate, nationwide improvements in quality, record low cost growth, and a re-birth of private sector innovation and progress.
