The Hill: GOP lawmaker subpoenas ObamaCare enrollment data

By Jonathan Easley

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) on Tuesday issued a subpoena to the agency responsible for implementing ObamaCare, requiring it to turn over all the data the agency has about how many people have enrolled in the healthcare exchanges.

Camp previously requested the data from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Administrator Marilyn Tavenner at a hearing last month but says the agency has refused to provide it.

He is demanding the documents by Friday. 

“Administration officials … have been provided with status reports about the number of people who may have enrolled in the exchanges,” Camp wrote in his letter to Tavenner. “However, you refuse to make those reports available to policy makers. Congress needs to know what you know so Congress, the American people’s representatives, can also take corrective action.”

Earlier on Tuesday, Tavenner told the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee that the enrollment data would be released next week. However, CMS has not said what day it would be released, or whether the data would be provided in a lump number, or with a breakdown that shows what kinds of consumers are enrolling and how they’re doing it.

Camp indicated he wanted details about the data. In a release accompanying the letter, his office noted the lawmaker was asking CMS to “provide all data the agency has on enrollment in the Exchanges.”
