Health Affairs Policy Spotlight: The Biden Health Agenda with Elizabeth "Liz" Fowler

June 3, 2021

"One-on-One" with Elizabeth "Liz" Fowler, CMS and CMMI

On Thursday, June 3, 2021, Health Affairs Editor-in-Chief Alan Weil welcomed Elizabeth “Liz” Fowler, the new deputy administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and director of its Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI), for an in-depth discussion of Biden Administration’s plans and priorities for CMS and CMMI. 

As chief health council to then-Senate Finance Committee Chair Max Baucus (D-MT) at the time of the passage of the Affordable Care Act, Liz Fowler was a major force in crafting and shepherding the landmark legislation through the Senate. Later, as a vice president at The Commonwealth Fund, she was a contributor to Health Affairs’ 2020 special issue on The Affordable Care Act Turns 10.  In her current post, Dr. Fowler will play a key role setting priorities for the future of the ACA, insurance exchanges, Medicaid expansion, and a host of other issues critical to the quality, accessibility, and affordability of American health care.
