The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has named replacements for two top executives who exited the agency after the botched rollout of the federal government's online insurance exchange, HealthCare.gov. In a letter to employees, CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner said the agency promoted Tim Love to serve as chief operating officer and appointed Dave Nelson as its new chief information officer.
Love, who previously served as CMS's No. 2 operating officer, replaces former COO Michelle Snyder, who retired in December. His career includes nearly three decades in public service, including stints with the Navy and Peace Corps, as well as 22 years with CMS, according to the announcement.
