Fierce Healthcare | Agency veteran appointed as acting CMS administrator
Agency veteran Liz Richter has been named the acting administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
The announcement Wednesday comes as President Joe Biden has yet to name a permanent administrator, who will require Senate confirmation.
Richter has served at CMS since 1990 and most recently served as the deputy center director for the Center for Medicare. She has also served as the director of the Hospital and Ambulatory Policy Group in the Center for Medicare Management.
