Washington, DC – In response to the swearing in of Ms. Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, the new administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services the Senior Care Pharmacy Coalition (SCPC) offered the following statement from SCPC President and CEO Alan Rosenbloom:

“Today, we have ushered in a new era for Medicare and Medicaid with the start of Ms. Chiquita Brooks-LaSure’s tenure as the administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Her background in health care runs deep—from her previous time at CMS to her work in Congress, I am confident in her expertise and leadership.
