Press release:

Energy and Commerce & Ways and Means Committee Leaders Demand Answers from Administration on Unappropriated Payments Made Under Health Care Law

Issued by: U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee

Date: July 8, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC, July 8, 2015 – Leaders of the House Energy and Commerce and Ways and Means Committees this week demanded responses from Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew regarding payments the administration has made to insurance companies to subsidize cost-sharing under the health care law after the administration requested – but did not receive from Congress – an appropriation of funding.

Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI), Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI), Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations Chairman Tim Murphy (R-PA) and Ways and Means Subcommittee on Oversight Chairman Peter Roskam (R-IL) today sent letters to HHS and the Treasury Department repeating requests first made on February 3, 2015.

The committee leaders write, “To date, HHS has not provided any documents of information in response to that request. The committees reiterate the February 3, 2015, request. Please provide the department’s responses to the committees by July 21, 2015. If [HHS/the Department] fails to produce the documents and information, the committees will have no choice but to consider the use of compulsory process to obtain them.”
