HHS Secretary Azar Declares Public Health Emergency in Louisiana Due to Tropical Storm Barry

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar today declared a public health emergency in Louisiana to prepare for potential impacts of Tropical Storm Barry. The declaration follows President Trump’s emergency declaration for the state and gives Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) beneficiaries and their healthcare providers and suppliers greater flexibility in meeting emergency health needs.

“We are fully prepared to support communities that need our help due to the storm,” Secretary Azar said. “We are working closely with state health and emergency management officials to anticipate the communities’ healthcare needs and be ready to meet them.”

Secretary Azar acted under his authority in the Public Health Service Act and Social Security Act in declaring the public health emergency in Louisiana and authorizing flexibilities to support CMS beneficiaries. These actions and flexibilities are retroactive to July 10, 2019.

In addition to making this declaration, HHS worked with FEMA to pre-position approximately 100 medical and public health personnel from the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, the National Disaster Medical System and across the department, along with caches of medical equipment for HHS medical teams, so that they are readily available immediately after the storm.

The HHS Secretary’s Operation Center, managed by the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), remains activated 24/7 to coordinate federal public health and medical support, bringing to bear the federal government’s full range of health-related assets and resources.

ASPR and CMS collaborated to provide information to state health officials in Louisiana on the number of Medicare beneficiaries who are electrically dependent or rely on dialysis or on special medical equipment at home. This information assists health and emergency management agencies in saving lives, particularly after extended power outages. In addition, ASPR and CMS are working with their partners to identify dialysis centers in the storm’s path and are helping them develop plans to pre-dialyze patients and address patients’ needs after the storm.

Secretary Azar Hails Court Victory for President Trump’s Healthcare Agenda

Today, HHS Secretary Alex Azar issued the following statement regarding the United States District Court for the District of Columbia’s decision to uphold HHS’s regulations providing Americans with more access to affordable short-term, limited-duration insurance plans:

“Today’s court decision is a clear victory for American patients who saw their costs rise and choices disappear under the Affordable Care Act. President Trump has shown that we can open up dramatically more affordable options for Americans who buy their own insurance while still always protecting patients with preexisting conditions. The President and HHS will continue taking action to provide all Americans with ways to finance their care that provide the affordability they need, the options and control they want, and the quality they deserve.”

Secretary Azar Visits Iowa to Highlight Pledge to America’s Workers with Ivanka Trump and Governor Reynolds

Today, as part of Pledge to America’s Workers Month, HHS Secretary Alex M. Azar II participated in an employee roundtable at the Hy-Vee Helpful Smiles Technology (HST) Innovation Center in Grimes, Iowa, with Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump and Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds.

This roundtable marks the one-year anniversary of President Trump’s Executive Order establishing the National Council for the American Worker and the Pledge to America’s Workers initiative, which is aimed at challenging companies of all sizes to commit to providing new education and training opportunities over the next five years — and celebrating their commitment.  

Hy-Vee Chairman, CEO, and President Randy Edeker led a tour of the training facility, where he discussed some of the features of the facility, including the Hy-Vee Aisles Online Kiosk, the Hy-Vee KidsFit Program, and the HST Basketball Court. The group stopped in several meetings in progress, including HR Orientation Training, Dietician Media Training, and Pharmacist Adherence Training for pharmacists and technicians.

After the tour, CEO Edeker moderated a roundtable where employees shared stories of the impact that workforce training has had on their careers. The roundtable highlighted the vibrant economy and low unemployment rate nationwide and in the state of Iowa; the importance of workforce development in a booming job market; and the impact that President Trump’s Pledge to America’s Workers initiative is having - with more than 280 companies and 38 governors signing the pledge, together pledging to create nearly 10 million employee opportunities.

HHS Secretary Azar Statement on Continuing Leadership Expansion

The Department of Health and Human Services announced today that Secretary Alex Azar will be elevating Paul Mango, currently Chief of Staff at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, to serve as the Department’s Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy, a newly created position to oversee policy planning and coordination for the Department. 

Secretary Alex Azar released the following statement regarding the announcement:

“HHS has an incredibly broad mission and a deep team of highly qualified leaders who are executing on it every day. Having a Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy will help our leaders better coordinate their work, support each other, and achieve results together. Paul is a highly regarded healthcare and policy leader whom I have known for more than a decade, and I cannot imagine a better choice for this new role. Promoting Paul as Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy, under Chief of Staff Brian Harrison and alongside Judy Stecker as Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations and Strategy, is part of ongoing efforts to organize HHS in a way that will maximize progress on our shared goals. With President Trump’s strong commitment to our mission, this expanded HHS leadership team will deliver even more impressive results for the American people.”

Chief of Staff Brian Harrison released the following statement:

“Having Paul as the Department’s chief policy planner and coordinator is a major advance for our ability to deliver on the Department’s mission and the Secretary’s strategic vision for HHS. I have enjoyed working with Paul for the past year and have been impressed by his leadership at CMS. Adding him to the leadership team in the Secretary’s office will be an invaluable contribution to the work of all HHS leaders. I look forward to working with him and Judy as part of an expanded, cohesive team that continues to deliver on the vision President Trump and Secretary Azar have for HHS.”
