Weekend update

For the second weekend in a row, the FEHBlog has been traveling on the East Coast. Fortunately there’s not much to update this weekend because it’s mid-August and everyone, including Congress, is out of town, just like the FEHBlog. (But he is returning to DC this afternoon).

A Drug Channels review of CMS’s recent healthcare spending report did catch the FEHBlog’s eye this weekend. Also the Federal Times interviewed the CEO of the contractor who is handling the employee notification services for the first OPM data breach of 2015.  Finally, Benefits Pro discusses a survey concerning the ACA’s impact on hospitals as employers, which is an interesting angle.
