The most important health-care reformer you’ve (probably) never heard of

Aside from the secretary of health and human services, the presidential appointee with the most power over the future of the American health-care system is the director of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Medicare and Medicaid are the country’s largest insurers, and reforms and ideas that begin in their shops often spread through the rest of the system. That’s a big part of the theory behind the independent commission empowered to reform Medicare: Good ideas that work in Medicare will quickly migrate to the private insurance market.
