Former Medicare and Medicaid head Don Berwick to CAP

Don Berwick, the Medicare and Medicaid top official who resigned at the end of last year, will join the progressive Center for American Progress as a senior fellow.

Washington Post colleague Sarah Kliff has the scoop and an exclusive Q&A with Berwick on the Affordable Care Act, which, despite the knocking it’s taking, he sees getting stronger.

I firmly believe that the best way to make care affordable is improve it. The Affordable Care Act is a foundation, and there’s a lot of stuff going on around it. It’s game time now. In the next couple of years we’re going to need to see health-care costs coming under firm control. If that happens, I’ll be optimistic.

Kliff’s full interview here.
