On the Hill: House Panel Debates Opioid Plans

Republicans and Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee clashed at a hearing last week over differing plans to address the opioid epidemic — including the reauthorization of the SUPPORT Act, legislation endorsed by America’s Essential Hospitals that is set to expire later this year.

The SUPPORT Act, a large legislative package from the 115th Congress, would direct federal resources toward prevention, education, coverage, treatment, and workforce to combat the opioid epidemic and support mental and behavioral health access. The full committee will need to approve the bills before they can move to the House floor for a vote.

This is just one of several key health programs that will expire without congressional action by Sept. 30, and with fewer than 20 legislative days until the August recess, the clock is ticking for lawmakers on the Hill.

Also last week, the House Committee on Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations held a hearing on the success of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 in jumpstarting a transition to value-based care, among other items. No formal legislation was involved in the hearing.
