According to The Hill:

“Brian Neale, a top Medicaid official in the Trump administration, is leaving his post next month, officials announced Tuesday.

Neale is the deputy administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) overseeing Medicaid.

His departure comes amid a major conservative change in Medicaid, allowing states to impose work requirements on enrollees, a move the administration announced earlier this month.

Neale had helped shepherd those changes.

It is not clear where he is going or why he decided to leave.” Read the full article here.
