Andy Slavitt on the Upcoming Election and Ongoing Pandemic


Andy Slavitt, MBA, says that the choice between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden in next month’s presidential election centers on who has the right approach to handling the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Slavitt, who served as acting administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) in the Obama administration, said that Biden has a proven track record of leading during a pandemic and could serve as a “unifier for the nation.”

In a conversation with HealthLeaders, Slavitt discussed the upcoming election, what each outcome could mean for healthcare executives, and his ongoing involvement with the Medicaid Transformation Project (MTP).
