Early in the Trump administration, there were hearings for the initial Secretary of Health, Tom Price, and for the CMS administrator, Seema Verma. The Price hearings weren't particular informative of future policy but I found the Verma hearings extremely interesting and worthy of study, at the time (here, here.)
We've now had the HHS Secretary Becerra confirmation hearings - I don't know how telling they will prove to be, but I provide links below. In the near future, we'll have hearings for proposed CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure (here) and I'll provide links when they occur.
