On the Hill: Republican ACA Proposal Leaked, CMS Confirmation Hearing

A leaked House Republican leadership plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) surfaced last week, creating major buzz in Washington and raising serious concerns for essential hospitals.

America’s Essential Hospitals released a statement on the proposal, along with an Action Update summarizing its provisions.

Also last week, the Senate Committee on Finance held a hearing to consider the nomination of Seema Verma to lead the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

Meanwhile, Congress this week is in recess as lawmakers travel back to their states and districts for local business and to meet with constituents. Many will be holding town hall meetings and can expect questions about the future of health care.
