PPACA: What's Up with the Multi-State Plans?

House Republicans and Republican state officials have been fighting to block implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) and funding of PPACA implementation.

The Republicans at the House Ways and Means Committee health subcommittee took a different approach -- objecting to what they are delays in efforts by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to implement PPACA -- Wednesday at a hearing on implementation of the PPACA health insurance exchange regulations and related regulations.

Nevada exchange organizers recently complained about having to make decisions about their state's exchange program without having all of the answers they would like from HHS.

At the Ways and Means hearing, Consedine said HHS itself put about 100 references to regulations or batches of advice that were still in the works in the final rule on setting up an exchange. HHS still has not published any of those regulations, Consedine said.
