Maine's ACA exchange director to lead new healthcare affordability office

Maine Gov. Janet Mills has nominated the state's ACA marketplace director, Meg Garratt-Reed, to be executive director of the new Office of Affordable Health Care. 

The OAHC is an independent, nonpartisan agency that will analyze increasing healthcare costs and propose solutions for the state, according to a Jan. 30 news release.

Ms. Garratt-Reed was key to launching, the state's insurance marketplace, in 2021. Her nomination must still be reviewed and confirmed by the state legislature for a five-year term.

The new office will also be advised by a 13-member council that includes representatives from healthcare providers, payers, consumers, workforce and other experts.
