ParenteBeard Health Care Reform Implementation Update September 9, 2022
September 11, 2022

After spending the past month in their home districts listening to constituents, this week House and Senate members are back in Washington and Congress is back in session.  Though attention has turned to back-to-school, back-to-football, and for many, to remembering the events of September 11 and making difficult decisions on Syria, it is not far from anyone’s mind that open enrollment begins in less than one month.  The Obama administration is immersed in an all-out push to promote the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – the administration is planning a $12 million ad buy in key states, this past weekend Enroll America hosted over 200 events across the country to promote the ACA and the Baltimore Ravens have been recruited to help push enrollment in Maryland.  Additionally, regulations implementing the Affordable Care Act continue to be released, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will inform insurance issuers of their statuses as Qualified Health Providers on September 9, the Committee on Energy and Commerce has scheduled an ACA hearing for September 10, Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz will headline the “Exempt America Tour” rally on September 10 and the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission will meet to discuss Accountable Care Organizations, Medicare Advantage, dual eligibles and Medicare Part D on September 12 and 13.
