Senate Confirms CMS Administrator

Although later than expected due to a hold placed by Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), the Senate voted yesterday to confirm Marilyn Tavenner as Administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The roll call vote, which passed 91-7, places Tavenner as the first confirmed administrator since 2005, when Mark McClellan left the agency. She has been Acting Administrator since December of 2011.
