Republicans in the House and Senate are trying to get more information about the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports Act, a consulting firm says.

Analysts at the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, Washington, report that the Republican leaders of the House Energy and Commerce Committee have asked groups such as America’s Health Insurance Plans, Washington, and AARP, Washington, for information about negotiations with the Obama administration on long term care program provisions and other provisions in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA).

Republican senators have asked the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for CLASS Act premium, participation and actuarial models that were created before PPACA was passed, the analysts say.
