About the Speakers



Tangita Adams Daramola
Competitive Acquisition Ombudsman, Medicare Ombudsman Group, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)

Tangita Daramola was named to her position in October 2011. Her core tasks are to respond to complaints and inquiries made by suppliers and individuals relating to the application of the Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Supplies (DMEPOS) Competitive Bidding Program and to submit an annual report to Congress. 

Ms. Daramola has worked with organizations to incorporate partner and stakeholder feedback into the National outreach communication plan and improve the DMEPOS Competitive Bidding inquiry and complaint handling process for suppliers and beneficiaries.

Ms. Daramola began her career as a Presidential Intern and has held a number of senior positions. She served as the Senior Advisor to the first Medicare Beneficiary Ombudsman, where she worked to establish the requirements for Ombudsman services within CMS and developed complaint data reporting mechanisms for the Medicare Prescription Drug Program.  She was the Director of the Division of Beneficiary Inquiry Trends and Analysis, where she was instrumental in establishing more effective national customer service standards for complaints and inquiries.  

Ms. Daramola has provided ongoing support to the Agency’s initiatives and recently was asked to develop strategic planning initiatives to promote CMS’ external communication programs. Her passion has been to focus the attention of the Agency on issues impacting vulnerable populations including disabled beneficiaries, those with a mental illness, and issues related to disparities in service and treatment of Medicare beneficiaries.
