House Energy and Commerce Committee Holds Hearing on Medicaid

Hearing at Court House

This week, the House Committee on Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health held its first hearing of the year focused on the critical importance of Medicaid as a source of health care, including long-term care, for Americans with disabilities.

A good deal of the hearing focused on Bush Administration proposed regulations which effectively hold states back from making progress towards transitioning individuals with disabilities back into their communities.
