Cindy Mann Appointed as Director of the Center for Medicaid and State Operations at CMS

June 2, 2009

Last Friday, Health and Human Services  (HHS)Secretary Kathleen Sebelius appointed Cindy Mann as Director of the Center for Medicaid and State Operations.  This position is within the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and  oversees the federal part of both the Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program.

The HHS press release said “Mann most recently served as a research professor and executive director of the Center for Children and Families(CCF) at Georgetown University’s Health Policy Institute.” Additionally, it states that “Mann previously served as director of the Family and Children’s Health Programs at CMSO from 1999-2001; in that capacity she played a key role in implementing Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.” 


Cindy visited Iowa several times over the last few years in her role at Georgetown and worked with Iowa policymakers, legislators, the Governor’s office, advocates and providers to improve health care policies for Iowans. 


We, at the Child and Family Policy Center, will miss her in her role at CCF, but are thrilled for what this means at the national and state levels.


Congratulations, Cindy!
