Andrea Palm, the new HHS deputy secretary, was often the person 340B stakeholders met with at HHS when she served in the department during the Obama administration.

Andrea Palm Confirmed as HHS Deputy Secretary

The U.S. Senate on Wednesday voted 61-37 to confirm Andrea Palm’s nomination to be deputy secretary for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Palm voiced support for the 340B program during her confirmation hearing.

Palm’s confirmation still leaves a number of major posts within HHS unfilled including the heads of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Only one of the three posts, CMS administrator, has been nominated.  Senate Democrats broke a log jam yesterday that will likely enable Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, President Biden’s  nominee as CMS administrator, to be approved as early as next week. The Senate voted 51-48 on Wednesday to discharge her nomination from the Senate Finance Committee where the committee deadlocked on her nomination.
