Health Leaders Media

A vote by the Republican-dominated House Ways & Means Committee has set the stage for the full House to consider the repeal of provisions that would provide billions of dollars in funding for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. In votes primarily along party lines, the committee voted Thursday 23-11 to repeal the excise tax on medical devices and 24-9 to repeal ACA provisions that prohibit using health savings accounts to purchase over-the-counter remedies such as cough syrup and pain killers.
