House leaders picked their committee chairs last week. Here's a look at who holds the gavel on key healthcare committees and their likely agendas.
House Oversight and Reform Committee
Chair Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.)
The panel has already set a hearing on high drug costs. Cummings has beat the drum on the issue for years and met with HHS Secretary Alex Azar last week to discuss the issue.
Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Ill.) heads up the health subcommittee and told Modern Healthcare earlier this month that he sees his oversight role as encompassing industry as well as government. While there are no immediate plans to haul in executives from manufacturers and hospitals, he said he is open to it.
