ACA Survives Shutdown But Remains Troubled

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) came out of a government shutdown unscathed, but the troubled rollout of exchanges this month means the law is still a political lightning rod as a number of House committees plan to hold hearings focused on ACA implementation issues.

Other highlights include:

  • California’s governor vetoes a transparency bill and
    a bill affecting dispensing of biosimilar drugs.
  • A health insurance carrier withdraws from
    New Hampshire market.
  • Nevada’s health insurance exchange enrolls
    2,000 members.
  • Medicaid coverage expansion is focus of hearings
    in Ohio.
