On this week’s special episode of Stay Tuned, Preet is joined by Andy Slavitt, who served as the Acting Administrator of Medicare and Medicaid Services during the last two years of the Obama administration. A healthcare industry veteran, Slavitt helped to salvage the maligned Healthcare.gov and worked to improve federal health care data analytics. Since leaving government, Slavitt has remained a critical voice in the battle for healthcare coverage, founding the non-profit United States of Care and the investment firm Town Hall Ventures in 2018. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Slavitt has been on the front lines—working to acquire healthcare supplies for medical workers, helping to popularize #StayHome, and appearing on TV shows and podcasts to explain how we can flatten the curve.
