CMS has announced a realignment of its organization structure and named new senior CMS appointments. Most notably, CMS has established a new Office of External Affairs and Beneficiary Services, along with the following four “Centers”: the Center for Medicare; the Center for Medicaid, CHIP and Survey & Certification; the Center for Program Integrity; and the Center for Strategic Planning. CMS also named Marilyn Tavenner, former Secretary of Health and Human Resources for the Commonwealth of Virginia, to the new position of CMS Principal Deputy Administrator. In addition, CMS announced that Peter Budetti, an MD/JD who has addressed health care fraud in a number of capacities, will be serving as Deputy Administrator for Program Integrity. The Obama Administration still has not named a candidate for CMS Administrator; Charlene Frizzera continues to serve as Acting Administrator.
