Adam Boehler, HHS deputy administrator and director of CMS' Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, has been nominated for another federal position.
President Donald Trump Boehler to be CEO of the U.S. International Development Money Corp., an agency recently formed under the Trump administration and with overseeing finances of projects in foreign countries.
In a Wednesday, CMS Administrator Seema Verma congratulated Boehler on his nomination.
"You have taken your private sector success as an investor and entrepreneur and made a significant, lasting impact at CMS and CMMI," she said.
Prior to joining HHS, Boehler was the founder of home healthcare company Landmark Health, which assumed risk for its more than 80,000 patients, many of whom are chronically ill or elderly. He also founded Avalon Project Japan Solutions, a laboratory benefit services company.
The new agency he's been tapped to head isn't healthcare-focused. The U.S. International Development Money Corp. was formed in 2018 through the combination of two agencies: the Overseas Private Investment Corp. and the Development Credit Authority.
