Rep. Brady Releases Draft Bill to Alter Medicare Hospital Payment Policies


Eric Zimmerman assessed draft legislation to change how Medicare pays for some hospital stays, saying that “stakeholders should view this bill for what it is, a discussion draft intended to spark debate, and not as something that should be expected to advance in its current form this year or next. Nonetheless, it should be seriously evaluated because it will start a new discussion about the future of Medicare payment to hospitals that could lead to legislative change in the future.
