Biden Staffs Up with 340B Policy Experts in Key Positions

President Biden is bringing a number of 340B policy experts on board to his team. Yesterday, he formally nominated Andrea Palm, most recently Wisconsin’s health secretary-designate, to be U.S. Deputy Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). Palm would be the number two official at HHS, ranking behind Xavier Becerra if he is confirmed for the number one job. Becerra’s nomination is being considered by the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee today and by the Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday.

The administration told reporters in mid-January that it planned to nominate Palm for the HHS post. Tony Evers, Wisconsin’s Democratic Governor nominated Palm to be the state health secretary in January 2019, but the Republican controlled state Senate had blocked her nomination from coming to a vote. She performed her duties pending confirmation.
