Not all cooperation between the political parties has ceased in DC. During recent days, the House passed five health bills applauded by both Democrats and Republicans. These bills address the pediatric health care workforce, the nursing workforce, and palliative care. On a more partisan basis, three House committees moved forward on the Democrats’ bill on prescription drug prices (see the “Congress” section). Open enrollment begins this Friday, and this Update includes links to numerous resources for assisters and for consumers (see the ACA section).
