Medicare Chief Jonathan Blum To Leave CMS
CMS Principal Deputy Administrator Jonathan Blum will resign on May 16, according to an internal email from CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner. Tavenner cited unspecified "new opportunities" as the reason for Blum's resignation and noted that under his leadership, "the Medicare program has served as one of our primary drivers to shift our health care system to reward quality, care improvement and value."
