Unpacking a Week of Hearings, Announcements, and Tuesday’s Primary Elections

June 8, 2018  |  By: NAHU


Lawmakers came back from their Memorial Day recess with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell emphatically cancelling the customary month-long August recess so that legislators can focus on their growing workload ahead of the November elections. On the House side, HHS Secretary Alex Azar testified on the Trump Administration’s priorities heading into the ACA’s sixth open enrollment period and another hearing was held on legislative efforts to promote consumer directed healthcare, including NAHU’s push to pass the Bipartisan HSA Improvement Act. NAHU’s Vice Presidents of Congressional Affairs Chris Hartmann and John Greene join the podcast this week to help make sense of it all, in addition to breaking down the results of this week’s “Super Tuesday” where eight states held primary elections, including California’s much anticipated top-two primary.
