Ways and Means Committee seeks provider feedback on regulatory relief

In the midst of Senate activity last week with the ACA repeal bill, Ways and Means Health Subcommittee chairman Pat Tiberi (R-OH), with support from Ways and Means Committee chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX), announced an initiative called the “Medicare Red Tape Relief Project,” to deliver regulatory relief to providers, seeking input on opportunities to reduce legislative and regulatory burdens and improve the efficiency and quality of services for seniors and individuals with disabilities.

The initiative involves three stages:

  • Request feedback from stakeholders
  • Hold roundtables with stakeholders
  • Take congressional action based on feedback

Stage one feedback is sought on opportunities that could be achieved through either legislative or administrative authority and is due to the committee by August 25 using the form located here. SDAHO will submit comments on behalf of our members based on our federal priorities.
