HHS Official Found Dead With “Multiple Blunt Force Injuries”, Ruled Suicide

Daniel Best, a former pharmaceutical executive recently tapped by the Trump administration to lower prescription drug prices for the US Department of Health and Human Services, was found “unresponsive” at 5:25 a.m. on Nov. 1 near the garage door exit of an apartment building in D.C.’s Navy Yard neighborhood.

Best, a senior adviser to HHS Secretary Alex Azar, worked for over a decade as an executive for several pharmaceutical companies, including 12 years at Pfizer, MemberHealth, Universal American, and CVS Caremark Corporation, where he made just over half a million a year negotiating drug prices for seniors.

“He brought his deep expertise and passion to this task with great humility and collegiality,” said Azar in a statement after Best's death. “All of us who served with Dan at HHS and in the administration mourn his passing and extend our thoughts and prayers to his wife Lisa and the entire Best family at this difficult time.”
