House Panel Holds Health Reform Costs Hearing

March 8, 2011 ( – The Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions of the U.S.House Education & the Workforce Committee has scheduled a Thursday morning hearing about whether additional cost from the health reform law is affecting employer health coverage.

The panel’s hearing announcement said the session “will provide Subcommittee members an opportunity to examine how the Democrats’ health care law contributes to increased costs and additional burdens on employer-provided health care.”

According to the announcement: “Numerous analyses estimate this law will further contribute to rising health care costs, making it more difficult for employers to afford to offer quality health care coverage.“

The session is in Room 2175 of the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C.
