House Committee Calls Hearing Over Obamacare Rollout


The House Energy and Commerce Committee will hold a hearing on Oct. 24 to examine the rollout of Obamacare’s health insurance marketplaces.

The committee has called for Health and Human Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to testify, though it notes that the Obama administration “has rejected” previous requests to publicly answer questions about the troubled launch.

The committee has also asked for the input of software contractors. The marketplace’s technological infrastructure has reportedly been one of the main causes of problems that website users have faced.
