Sebilius Resigns as HHS Secretary
Kathleen Sebelius has resigned as Secretary of Health and Human Services, a position she held for five years. Although Sebelius apparently stepped down voluntarily, her tenure was marked by controversy, including a bumpy rollout of the Healthcare.gov website. Sebelius recently suffered a further blow to her credibility when implementation of the ICD-10-CM codeset was delayed for a least a year, despite her repeated assertions that no such delay would occur.
The White House announced that President Obama will nominate Syliva Mathews Burwell, the current Director of the Office of Management and Budget, to succeed Sebelius.
