The mission of United States of Care is to ensure that every single American has access to quality, affordable health care regardless of health status, social need, or income.
A new non-partisan non-profit, we are building and mobilizing a movement to achieve long-lasting solutions that make health care better for everyone. United States of Care will help make it happen by working with Americans from across the country: patients and caregivers, advocates, physicians and other clinicians, policymakers, and business, civic, and religious leaders.
Andy Slavitt is the Board Chair of United States of Care. Slavitt is also a senior advisor to the Bipartisan Council and is a member of its Future of Health Care Initiative. Slavitt has decades of private and public sector leadership in health care, business and technology.
From 2015-2017, Slavitt served as the Acting Administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). In that role, he oversaw the Medicaid, Medicare, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and the Health Insurance Marketplace programs. Slavitt’s tenure at CMS was marked by the successful execution of a number of large new programs—including the significant shift to pay-for-value payment models, the implementation of the bipartisan MACRA legislation, and the Affordable Care Act.
Today, Slavitt remains dedicated to building a sustainable, high quality health care system that is available to all Americans and derives value from the private sector, health care providers, government and innovators. Throughout his career, Slavitt has demonstrated the power of bipartisan collaboration, particularly as he has overseen bipartisan efforts in payment reform, health information technology, competition and innovation. He has been recognized as one of the 10 most influential people in health care.
