House panel votes to repeal reform provisions
Modern Healthcare

In a proposal package that aims to save the federal government about $114 billion over 10 years, the House Energy and Commerce Committee approved a series of healthcare cost-cutting measures that would repeal several Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act provisions. The panel is one of six House committees that the recently-passed, fiscal 2013 House budget resolution instructed to find billions in savings as a way to avoid across-the-board reductions to federal programs next year through sequestration.
