Baucus calls hearing on long-term disability policies

Senate Finance Committee Chair Max Baucus (D-Mont.) has scheduled a hearing titled "Do Private Long-Term Disability Policies Provide the Protection They Promise?". The hearing will take place Tuesday.

The announcement comes a few days after House Energy and Commerce health Chair Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) vowed to launch an investigation into the skyrocketing cost of long-term health insurance.

Witnesses scheduled to testify include an actuary and a judge.
