On May 1, the House Energy and Commerce oversight subcommittee will hold a hearing, marking the first time Witty will appear before the House. This came after the health subcommittee heard about the Change Healthcare hack. Still, UnitedHealth, the parent company, failed to send representatives, which was a source of disappointment and frustration for the committee members.

Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers and oversight subcommittee chair Morgan Griffith issued a joint statement expressing their concerns. They stated that Americans are still grappling with the consequences of the hack, which has caused financial struggles for smaller healthcare providers and threatened critical access to healthcare for patients.

They look forward to learning more about the events leading up to and following the attack and understanding what measures were taken to mitigate its impact.

Change Healthcare, the largest medical claims processor in the country was severely impacted by the February cyberattack, which sent shockwaves throughout the entire healthcare industry.

The attack halted operations at some clinics and hospitals and held up billions of dollars in payments to healthcare providers, causing huge financial strain.

Lawmakers are eager to hear from UnitedHealth, which acquired Change in 2022 and may consider issuing a subpoena to compel their testimony. Witty is also expected to testify before the Senate Finance Committee soon, providing further insight into the hack and its consequences.
