Dr. Bucshon’s Statement on President-Elect Trump’s Healthcare Related Nominations
(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Congressman Larry Bucshon, a physician and member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, praised President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Congressman Tom Price, M.D. (R-GA) as Secretary of Health and Human Services and Seema Verma, MPH as Administrator of the Center of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Representative Tom Price, M.D. (R-GA) as Secretary of Health and Human Services:
“Dr. Price is a good man who cares deeply about patients and their access to quality healthcare,” said Bucshon. “As a physician with firsthand experience caring for patients, a leader on conservative healthcare policy, and Budget Committee Chairman, Dr. Price has both the practical and policy experience to lead the way at HHS. He’s also in a unique position to work with our Republican Congress to fix our nation’s healthcare system.”
Seema Verma, MPH as Administrator of the Center of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS):
“Ms. Verma helped usher in Indiana’s success with our market-based, patient-centered alternative to traditional Medicaid - Healthy Indiana Plan 2.0. Her experience with HIP 2.0 and understanding of our healthcare system will undoubtedly be an asset to the new Administration. I’m looking forward to having a partner in Ms. Verma and CMS as we work in the 115th Congress to advance common-sense healthcare policy.”
