Wolf to Nominate Teresa Miller to Head Health and Human Services

commissionermillerGovernor Tom Wolf announced today that he will name Insurance Commissioner Teresa Miller to become the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  HHS is the merged department Wolf proposed earlier this year to consolidate Departments of Aging; Drug and Alcohol Programs; Health; and Human Services.  

The move ends the questions of which department head would take over the merged department.  

“She embodies the best of public service – effectively working across the aisle and state lines – to make the lives of Pennsylvanians better and more secure. It is my honor to ask her to be the inaugural leader of the prospective unified Department of Health and Human Services,” Wolf said in a release announcing the pick.  

“This will be a chance for me to continue working on issues I have been passionate about, in some cases for more than seventeen years, and issues that are top priorities for this governor,” Miller said in the release.  

Miller has served as Insurance Commissioner since January 2015.  Prior to that she served in the federal government’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.  

In the release, Wolf touted Miller’s work on the the opioid epidemic and helping senior citizens.  

“Early in the administration, I worked closely with the governor to protect seniors who faced the loss of access to their doctors in Western Pennsylvania,” Miller said.

  3. Thank your share! I’m very happy to read this. This is the kind of manual that needs to be given and not the accidental misinformation that is at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this greatest doc!

  4. Maybe because Ted Dallas is the worlds biggest jagoff. Congratulations to Ms. Miller.

  5. Isn’t it a little curious that he is naming someone to head an agency that hasn’t been created yet. This may explain the departure of the Health Secretary. What does it say about Ted Dallas who has been, to all appearances, successfully heading DHS which is the largest component of the to be merged agency?

  6. Congrats Theresa but i’m hoping for you will do a good job for that position.
