Seema Verma sworn-in as head of top US healthcare agency

Thursday, March 16, 2017

Washington: Indian-American Seema Verma has been sworn-in as the head of a key healthcare agency in the Trump administration.

"President Trump has chosen one of the leading experts in America on state-based healthcare solutions to lead this important agency," US Vice President Mike Pence said at the swearing-in ceremony at the White House yesterday.

As the head of the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services she would be heading the USD 1 trillion federal agency that provides health services to 130 million Americans. Verma is the second Indian-American to be inducted into the Trump administration.

The US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley was the first cabinet rank official from the community to serve in any presidential administration.

Verma was elevated to the top federal position after her successful career in private health sector, spanning two decades.
