Chairs Rodgers, Griffith Announce a Subcommittee Hearing to Examine MACRA
Washington, D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations Chair Morgan Griffith (R-VA) today announced a subcommittee hearing titled “MACRA Checkup: Assessing Implementation and Challenges that Remain for Patients and Doctors.”
The Chairs released the following statement:
“It’s crucial that we continue to improve our health care system in a way that best serves patients and doctors. The bipartisan Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), which extended the critical Children’s Health Insurance Program, also intended to create incentives in Medicare to provide seniors with better quality care rather than just greater volume of care. Additionally, the law sought to more effectively use taxpayer dollars and make Medicare more sustainable. This hearing will give members an opportunity to hear from experts, evaluate the implementation of the law, and better understand what challenges remain.”
Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations hearing titled “MACRA Checkup: Assessing Implementation and the Challenges that Remain for Patients and Doctors.”
WHAT: A subcommittee hearing to examine the successes and remaining challenges of Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015.
