The announcement came by way of an internal email via CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner.

“It is with mixed emotions that I let you know that our Principal Deputy Administrator, Jonathan (Jon) Blum, has decided to leave CMS to pursue new opportunities,” Tavenner wrote. “Under Jon’s leadership, the Medicare program has served as one of our primary drivers to shift our health care system to reward quality, care improvement, and value.
