Dana Halvorson

The U.S. House Committee on Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) held a hearing this morning on the Administration’s continued efforts to implement and administer the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The Committee heard testimony from Andy Slavitt, Deputy Principal Administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and John Koskinen, Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

CMS is the federal agency that oversees the operation of the Exchanges through the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (CCIIO), and the IRS oversees the distribution and verification of the subsidies in the ACA. More details can be found in the hearing advisory.
