Michael Leavitt Addresses TMC Board of Directors

Three-term Utah Governor and Former Secretary of Health and Human Services Michael Leavitt Addresses TMC Board of Directors

Michael Leavitt, former US Secretary of Health and Human Services under President George W. Bush and three-term Utah Governor, spoke to the 10th Annual TMC Board of Directors Educational Retreat at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research. Leavitt discussed the current state of healthcare and where he feels the industry and policy are headed. He spoke of the importance of building networks within the industry to better serve patients and bring down costs. He predicted a change in the view on the Affordable Care Act away from one of repeal to one of amendment and change that will continue to bring about meaningful change in healthcare. 

Michael O. Leavitt is the founder and Chairman of Leavitt Partners where he helps clients navigate the future as they transition to new and better models of care. In 1993, Leavitt was elected governor of Utah. He served three terms (1993-2003). In 2003, he joined the Cabinet of President George W. Bush, serving in two positions: first as leader of the Environmental Protection Agency (2003-2005) and then as secretary of Health and Human Services (2005-2009). At HHS, Leavitt administered a $750 billion budget — nearly 25 percent of the entire federal budget — and 67,000 employees.

He led the implementation of the Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Program. The task required the design, systematization and implementation of a plan to provide 43 million seniors with a new prescription drug benefit. By the end of the first year, enrollments exceeded projections, prices were lower than projected and seniors expressed high levels of satisfaction.
