Cognosante adds rising CMS CCIIO leader

G2X TAKE: After a nearly 7-year stint at CMS/HHS, this former Deputy Division Director for the Verifications, Marketplace Eligibility & Enrollment Group has taken on a new role with industry.

Annie (Bollinger) Acs has joined Cognosante where she will be able to leverage her “years of operations and technical experience in implementing large health care programs required by the” ACA as a Senior CMS Delivery Lead for this SPARC prime.

While the role that CCIIO plays and their focus is expected to change to meet the new administration’s agenda, Cognosante, who was awarded a $341M CCIIO enrollment resolution and reconciliation task this time last year, will be positioning to support any emerging needs and these types of hires can only help their case.  

This departure comes on the heels of news that Karen Shields, Deputy Director of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (CCIIO), has moved on from CMS to take a role with industry.
