Medicare is probing the possible leak of a government decision regarding health insurers’ payments for next year, administrator Marilyn Tavenner said.
The official most responsible for the rollout of the Obamacare health-insurance exchange blamed outside contractors for the website woes, not her staff, in testimony before a U.S. House committee.
President Barack Obama re-nominated Marilyn Tavenner to be the administrator in charge of the $820 billion U.S. Medicare and Medicaid programs.
Washington experienced a rare moment of bipartisanship yesterday when Marilyn Tavenner breezed through her confirmation hearing before the Senate Finance Committee.
When House Republicans direct their opposition to Obamacare toward aggressive oversight rather than apocalyptic budget shenanigans, they can do themselves and the country a lot of good.
"Many consumers will have even more affordable choices for renewing their coverage and signing up for the first time through the health insurance marketplace."
