Former CMS Administrator Seema Verma will share insights on high value, low-cost health care at The RISE Summit on Social Determinants of Health on Monday, March 21 at The Omni Nashville.

Seema Verma, former administrator, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), will kick off the first day of the 2022 RISE Summit on Social Determinants of Health, discussing effective approaches to meet the needs of vulnerable populations within a value-based health care system.

As the longest-serving CMS Administrator in modern history and a national health policy expert, Verma will offer her insights on the tactical ways health care organizations can address social determinants of health (SDoH) problems within the framework and resources in our health care system.

During her prominent time at CMS, Verma implemented over 16 strategic initiatives aimed to lower costs, improve quality, and increase access in the U.S. health care system. She also worked to accelerate value-based care transformation and address SDoH by advancing new payment models throughout CMS programs, dropping premiums in Medicare Advantage, Part D, and the insurance exchanges.
