HARRISBURG, PA — Department of Human Services (DHS) Secretary Teresa Miller this week announced that she will resign her position effective April 30, 2021. Secretary Miller will be moving on to a new opportunity outside Pennsylvania.
“My time in Pennsylvania has afforded me opportunities to work on issues that are deeply close to my heart, and for that, I am extremely honored and grateful,” said Secretary Miller. “Through all of this, the people of Pennsylvania have been at the forefront of this work and have driven our commitment to constant improvement and innovation in service delivery, and I know this focus and work will continue to grow, allowing DHS and our partners to help people in new ways.”
Secretary Miller joined the Wolf Administration in January 2015, first serving as Pennsylvania’s Insurance Commissioner. As commissioner, Miller renewed the department’s commitment to consumer protection and reestablished an emphasis on consumer education and financial literacy in partnership with other state agencies, consumer groups, and advocates across Pennsylvania. Miller led the Insurance Department through attempts to replace the Affordable Care Act and advocated across Pennsylvania and to the United States Congress in defense of the law and how it has helped more than a million Pennsylvanians directly access health coverage and countless others through its consumer protections.
Secretary Miller was appointed to lead the Department of Human Services in August 2017. In her time at DHS, she has focused on strengthening and promoting Pennsylvania’s public assistance network to help people meet essential needs and improve their circumstances through difficult times, particularly in the last year.
