Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

I spent this past summer at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), in the Office of the Administrator (OA). My role focused on supporting senior policy advisors in modernizing CMS's approach to program integrity and implementing the CMS specific portions of the SUPPORT Act. I spent the majority of my time preparing informational memos on healthcare policy laws such as e-prescribing, the Stark Rule, Medicaid funding for territories, and provisions of the SUPPORT Act. Through this internship I also had the unique opportunity to volunteer at the Maternal Mortality Conference and the Blue Button Developers Conference. CMS/OA was a wonderful place to work. I am so grateful for the opportunity to gain insights into the realm of healthcare policy from incredible mentors.
