From 2015-2017, Andy Slavitt served as the Acting Administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). In that role, he oversaw the Medicaid, Medicare, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and the Health Insurance Marketplace programs. Slavitt’s tenure at CMS was marked by the successful execution of a number of large new programs—including the significant shift to pay-for-value payment models, the implementation of the bipartisan MACRA legislation, and the Affordable Care Act.
From 2003 to 2013, Andy worked at UnitedHealth Group, eventually serving as the Group Executive Vice President for Optum which he grew to a $40 billion health services enterprise. In 1999, Andy founded and served as CEO of HealthAllies, a venture backed Internet-based consumer health care company. HealthAllies created the first online health care marketplace for health care services.
Today, Slavitt remains dedicated to building a sustainable, high quality health care system that is available to all Americans and derives value from the private sector, health care providers, government and innovators. He is a senior advisor to the Bipartisan Policy Center and is a member of its Future of Health Care Initiative.
