Senate Finance Committee to Hear Azar on Jan. 9
AAHomecare submits questions to committee members for the HHS Secretary nominee’s confirmation hearing.
The Senate Finance Committee has slated a confirmation hearing for Secretary of Health and Human Services nominee Alex M. Azar II for Jan. 9.
The confirmation hearing starts at 10 a.m. EDT, and can be viewed via streaming on the committee’s website at bit.ly/2qoQ75D.
The American Association for Homecare noted in a membership update that it had submitted questions to the committee for its members to ask Azar.
Azar is the former president of the U.S. division of pharmaceuticals giant Eli Lilly and Company, and also served as the General Counsel for HHS prior to becoming Deputy Secretary.
Azar would fill the spot left open by the previous HHS Secretary, Tom Price, who resigned from the post after it was revealed he routinely used expensive charter flights for government travel.
