Senate Republicans on the Finance Committee have scheduled a forum on Thursday, the Affordable Care Act’s six-month anniversary, to discuss Don Berwick’s role as the CMS administrator as he begins leading the agency to implement the new health reform law.

Berwick “has yet to appear before the Senate, despite repeated requests, demonstrating a complete lack of transparency by the administration and Senate majority on implementation of the health law, including plans for Medicare and Medicaid,” according to a statement from the finance panel’s GOP press office.
