Modern Healthcare

A top CMS official on Wednesday defended the process the federal agency has used to implement measures of the health reform law in a congressional hearing that examined the regulatory effects of the 2010 act. Steven Larsen, deputy administrator and director of CMS’ Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, was the only witness to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, which hosted a hearing on the same topic earlier this month.
