Senate committee on health
click to enlarge A Senate committee has taken the unusual step of rejecting Gov. Phil Scott’s appointee to the Vermont Labor Relations Board. Confirmations are typically perfunctory affairs in the Statehouse, but the Vermont State Employees' Association has been campaigning strenuously against the appointment of retired lawyer Karen O’Neill, who joined the quasi-judicial board that handles labor disputes earlier this year. On Wednesday, the Senate Committee on Economic Development, Housing and General Affairs voted 4-1 not to confirm O’Neill. The panel's lone Republican, Sen. David Soucy (R-Rutland), cast the dissenting vote. The entire Senate is expected to vote on the matter later this week. The dispute centers around whether O'Neill is qualified to serve as a neutral arbiter. State law requires that the Labor Relations Board consist of two members with management experience, two members with a background in labor and two neutral members. A separate hiring … [Read more...] about In Rare Move, Senate Committee Rejects Scott’s Labor Board Appointee
Last Updated Dec 10, 2009 6:23 PM EST Aetna Spends Less on Care Than It Claimed - Just as the U.S. Senate is considering a new reform bill amendment that would require insurers to spend 90 percent of the premium dollar on patient care, the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation reports that Aetna overstated in regulatory filings the amount it paid for the care of small-business employees by $4.9 billion. Aetna responded that it had accidentally reported that amount under the column of large-employer business and that it has already corrected the error. But that doesn't explain why the mistake lowered the insurance company's medical-loss ratio from 82 percent to 79 percent, according to the committee. [Source: Wall Street Journal] More Funds For Community Health Centers - President Obama announced that the government would provide almost $600 million to about 500 community health centers for renovations and electronic health records. Of this amount, which comes from … [Read more...] about Healthcare Roundup: Aetna Slammed by Senate Committee, $600M for Community Centers, Nurses Unite, NJ Court Boosts ASCs and More
State health insurance commissioners urged lawmakers to pass a bipartisan bill to help stabilize the health insurance market at the Senate's first health care hearing, following its failure to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act in July. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tennessee, chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee said Congress needs to take "one small step on a big issue that's been locked in a partisan stalemate for 7 years." Currently, 18 million Americans who do not get their health coverage from their employers buy their insurance on the individual marketplace. These individuals are the ones most directly impacted by rising premium costs. Mark Kreidler, Washington state's insurance commissioner, told lawmakers the next two weeks will be "particularly telling" because insurers will be making their final decisions about whether or not they'll participate in the marketplace. Insurance companies face a September 20 deadline for final … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Congress holds first hearing on health care since failure to repeal ACA
Last Updated Sep 7, 2017 4:51 PM EDT With health care premiums increasing, a bipartisan group of governors are asking Congress to give them greater control and flexibility into how their states implement the Affordable Care Act (ACA) by supporting and broadening state innovation waivers. Governors from Massachusetts, Montana, Tennessee, Utah and Colorado testified Thursday on Capitol Hill to the Senate Committee on Health, Education Labor and Pensions (HELP). Their testimony was part of ongoing Senate hearings on how to help stabilize insurance premiums, specifically as it relates to the individual insurance marketplace. Governor Steve Bullock, a Montana Democrat, thanked Congressional lawmakers for inviting the group of state leaders, saying that governors were on the front lines of implementing health care policy crafted in Washington. "Your recognizing of our role in this debate is incredibly significant," said Bullock.Bullock, who said 8 percent of those insured in … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Governors urge Congress to expand state flexibility in health care coverage
Senate Republican leaders postponed a procedural vote on their health care bill this week after it became apparent that the measure did not have the votes to move forward in its current form. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell had previously vowed that a vote would occur this week. But his decision to delay action was likely no great shock to House Speaker Paul Ryan, who faced his own set of difficulties moving a health care bill through the lower chamber earlier this year. Even before Obamacare repeal effort began in earnest in Congress, Ryan seemed to anticipate a tough road ahead, predicting a "deliberative legislative process" on health care during a March interview with "Face the Nation." "If you pass a bill out of the House and it can't get 51 votes in the Senate, will you have accomplished something?" asked CBS News' John Dickerson. "Well, I believe we can get 51 votes out of the Senate," Ryan replied. "This is what the legislative process looks like, when you are going … [Read more...] about Flashback: Paul Ryan touts “deliberative legislative process” on health care
As lawmakers in Washington remain divided over the future of health care in the United States, Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyoming, says there should be a bipartisan approach when it comes to legislation. "Should have been bipartisan when Obamacare was passed. It should be now as well," Barrasso said Sunday on "Face the Nation." "For big things that affect the country, it should be done in a bipartisan way," he added. But while Barrasso is supportive of a bipartisan effort to changing existing health care laws, he said that "with this resistance movement to President Trump and the energy in the Democrat Party," Republicans have been given the impression by top Democrats, like Chuck Schumer of New York and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, that the GOP should "expect no cooperation" in the health care debate. Transcript: Sen. John Barrasso on "Face the Nation" When pressed if any Republicans had reached out to Democrats in the hopes of creating a bipartisan effort on … [Read more...] about Barrasso on health care: “It should be done in a bipartisan way”
In the wake of a failed GOP-led effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California say the path forward toward health care reform includes "regular order." Speaking on "Face the Nation" Sunday, Flake said issues like health care, in addition to the nation's debt crisis, can't be tackled by one party alone. "We've just seen the limits of what one party can do," said Flake. "I'm glad to see that now we're talking about sitting down with our colleagues, going back to committee, going back to what we call regular order, and letting the committees and the experts deal with it, and bringing the public in more than we have before," he added. Flake, who details the divide among the Republican party in his new book, "Conscience of a Conservative: A Rejection of Destructive Politics and a Return to Principle," said that in the fallout over health care, the next best way to solve the issue requires … [Read more...] about Flake, Feinstein call for “regular order” in path forward on health care reform

WASHINGTON — As the Senate Judiciary Committee kicked off a hearing last week to talk about gun violence and school safety, panel chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley said a number of bills could garner bipartisan support.But the Iowa Republican, citing a gun-related bill that bypassed the committee and went straight to the Senate floor when Democrats were in control, said: “It’s possible that a similar approach may be used now as the Senate works together to consider what should be done about school safety and preventing mass violence.”The Senate has avoided traditional legislating-by-committee recently, particularly on intensely divisive subjects such as immigration. And now it appears any measures related to gun violence and school safety are likely to go the same route. Senators say this is the result of an institutional shift, over many years and under different parties, that concentrates power in leadership offices to the detriment of committees that used to … [Read more...] about Chuck Grassley suggests that more bills may bypass Senate committees
