25 Missed ACA Deadlines Thus Far
On April 21st the Congressional Research Service released a memo detailing a series of deadlines established by the ACA that the Obama Administration has missed. The most up to date tally includes 25 missed deadlines.
The memo indicates that not only have these deadlines been missed, but many of these tasks have yet to be completed despite the passage of several years since the intended deadlines. These neglected deadlines include the creation of a publicly available report on progress and recommendations of an Interagency Working Group, the development of health plan regulations to mandate reporting on efforts of patient wellness including and a national survey of employer based health programs. Zero of these three tasks have been completed and the third task has yet to be started because, according to the memo, “the CDC is exploring the feasibility of conducting this survey.”
