Congressional Hearings

A number of recent Congressional hearings have focused on the Affordable Care Act, including: a House Ways and Means Committee hearing on the impact the ACA on Medicare and Medicare beneficiaries; House and Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on the constitutionality of the ACA’s individual health insurance mandate; a House Education and the Workforce Committee hearing on the impact of the ACA on the economy, employers, and the workforce; a House Small Business Committee hearing on the ACA’s administrative burdens; and a House Energy and Commerce hearing on Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight issues. Other recent health policy hearings in the Finance Committee and Ways and Means Committee have addressed the President's FY 2012 budget proposal for HHS programs. Congress also has examined Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse and the impact of medical device regulation on jobs and patients.
