Health Care Weekly Preview from ML Strategies – March 2019 #2

Mintz - Health Care Viewpoints

This week, House Democrats will unveil a sweeping health care bill aimed at lowering premiums and out-of-pocket costs, and to target actions taken by the Administration to undermine the individual market. This comes on the heels of the Justice Department announcing on Monday evening that it will not defend the ACA in the Texas v. Azar legal challenge.

We will get a preview of aspects of the House Democrats health package in a hearing this week in the Energy & Commerce Health subcommittee. While much of the legislation focuses on lowering drug costs, there’s also legislation designed to bolster the Affordable Care Act. The legislation would provide funding for states to implement their exchanges, provide funding for outreach, establish a reinsurance program, and eliminate the short-term limited duration insurance plans, among other bills.

Please see full Preview below for more information.
