Reconciliation bills need less support than regular legislation that moves through the Senate and often contain partisan policies. As a result they need the scrutiny a hearing would provide.
Senators should be able to bring a reconciliation bill up for a vote without holding a committee hearing if it has enough support. It wouldn’t be wise to slow the Senate down even more.
