H.R. 2: Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA)

Issues: Medicare

Bipartisan leaders of the House Energy and Commerce and House Ways and Means Committees released the legislative package to permanently replace Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) on March 24, 2015. The agreement builds upon H.R. 1470, the SGR Repeal and Medicare Provider Payment Modernization Act, bipartisan, bicameral legislation to replace the SGR formula with a stable payment system that promotes higher quality care for seniors.
