WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) released the following statement after President-elect Trump’s transition team announced Rep. Tom Price, M.D. (R-GA) would serve as HHS Secretary in the Trump administration:  

“President-elect Trump couldn't have picked a better, more qualified HHS Secretary than Tom Price. Tom is a dear friend, and I know he'll address the challenges ahead by taking a patient-centered approach. I'm thrilled he'll be leading the administration's efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, and I look forward to continuing to work with Dr. Price to put patients back in charge of their health care decisions.”
