New Faces Running Healthcare in Washington: What does that mean for us?



By the time President Biden is done, over 3,000 people in Washington DC will have been appointed to a new job based on his selection or recommendation to run the federal agencies, with over 1/3rd of them in agencies that directly affect healthcare, health insurance, or employer based coverage rules.  What changes have they telegraphed are important to them, and with the current modest Congressional Majorities, what can they actually do?  More importantly, what do those changes mean to us?
