House Committee Pushes for Clarification on Medicaid Expansion, Health Exchanges

August 21, 2012

On August 20, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) and Health Subcommittee Chairman Joe Pitts (R-PA) sent a letter to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Acting Administrator Marilyn Tavenner, urging her to answer questions about the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion and state exchange laws.

The letter refers to approximately 60 questions asked of CMS in recent months by the Republican Governors Association and the National Association of Medicaid Directors and pushes for CMS to give specific answers to each question asked no later than September 3.

ANCOR reported on the NAMD letter and the RGA letter earlier this year.
