Last week was a whirlwind for healthcare policy, with the abrupt resignation of HHS Secretary Tom Price, the demise of the Graham-Cassidy plan and the missed deadline for the Children’s Health Insurance Program. This week’s intensity was only slightly reduced, as Congress and the Trump Administration work out what’s to come for the remainder of the year. On this week’s podcast, NAHU Vice President of Congressional Affairs Chris Hartmann and Vice President of Government Affairs Marcy M. Buckner review what happened, who’s in charge at HHS and what we can expect from the agency moving forward. They also discuss recent legislation that was introduced on employer reporting reform, CHIP and Medicare, and what it may mean for agents and brokers.
