Paul N. Casale Named to MedPAC

Paul N. Casale, MD, MPH, MACC, is one of two new appointments to the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) announced on May 28 by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO). MedPAC is an independent congressional agency established to advise Congress on issues affecting the Medicare program.

“I am honored to be named to MedPAC and to help advise Congress on issues of quality, access to care and cost – all of which are vital to optimizing patient care and outcomes and improving the health of Medicare beneficiaries,” says Casale.

Casale, whose nomination was endorsed by the ACC, is a professor of clinical medicine and population health sciences at Weill Cornell Medicine and an adjunct professor at Columbia University. He has been the executive director of New York Quality Care, an accountable care organization of Weill Cornell, Columbia University and New York-Presbyterian for the past eight years. He is also a past member of the College’s Board of Trustees and a long-time leader in ACC’s population health and value-based care efforts. He currently chairs the ACC Population Health Management Work Group. His MedPAC term will run through April 2027.
