March 13, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) today released the following statement after the Senate voted to confirm Seema Verma as Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS):

“Congratulations to Seema Verma on being confirmed to lead CMS—she’s the perfect person for this job. Seema has more than two decades of hands-on health care experience—including leading Indiana’s work to modernize its Medicaid program. I look forward to working with her to return control of health care back to states and give patients across America more control over their own care. President Trump has clearly put together a talented leadership team of health care advisors, and I’m confident that together we can deliver on our promise of lower costs, more choices, and greater access for individuals and families.”
