Donald Berwick Resigns as Head of Medicare Program

Donald Berwick Resigns as Head of Medicare Program   This afternoon the White House reportedly announced that Donald Berwick will be stepping down as head of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services effective December 2nd.  Berwick will be replaced by Marilyn Tavenner who formerly was the top health official for Virginia.  The resignation was prompted when 42 Republican senators reportedly asked President Obama to withdrawn Berwick’s nomination.  Berwick had been installed in a recess appointment in July 2010, meaning that he had never been formally approved by the Senate.  Tavenner has been with CMS since February 2010 and currently serves as Principal Deputy Administrator.
