Ms. Roherty wrote "We look forward to working with you in your new role. We believe that there are opportunities for strengthening the partnerships between states and the federal government as we seek to improve supports and services for older adults, people with disabilities, and other individuals who require LTSS. We believe strongly in a collaborative relationship that provides flexibility for innovation at the state and local level. We are heartened by the comments you made during your confirmation hearings that recognize the important role of states in the administration of Medicaid and other health care programs."
