“Trump names Rep. Tom Price as next HHS secretary,” by Amy Goldstein and Philip Rucker, Washington Post

“President-elect Donald Trump has chosen Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.),  a fierce critic of the Affordable Care Act and a proponent of overhauling the nation’s entitlement programs, to lead the department of Health and Human Services.  …  Trump also named Seema Verma, a health-care consultant who was the architect of Medicaid changes in Vice president-elect Mike Pence’s home state of Indiana, to run a crucial section of HHS: the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
Having watched the political apple cart overturned on Nov. 8, we’re beginning to see who’s going to be picking up the fruit and what they may do with it. Stay tuned.  Big changes are afoot.
