GOP lawmakers take aim at reform law regulations
Modern Healthcare

House Republicans on Thursday returned to the familiar topic of repealing the healthcare reform law as a House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee hearing examined the statute’s grandfathered-plan and medical-loss-ratio regulations.

Rep. Joe Pitts (R-Pa.) cited estimates from the Obama administration that 49% to 80% of small-employer plans, 34% to 64% of large-employer plans and 40% to 67% of individual insurance plans will not be grandfathered by the end of 2013—despite statements from President Barack Obama that those who like their plans can keep them.
