... and an Important September Hearing

On Sept. 6 and 7, the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee will host hearings on stabilizing premiums and helping individuals in the individual insurance market for 2018. The hearings have been described by its chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Ranking Member Patty Murray (D-Wash.) as a bipartisan effort to correct the Affordable Care Act without attempting to entirely destroy it. On Sept. 6, state insurance commissioners will testify. On Sept. 7, Governor Baker is expected to testify.
