Senate support needed for site-neutral payment policy letter

Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) are asking their Senate colleagues to sign on to a letter urging the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to withdraw proposals to expand certain site-neutral payment policies to grandfathered off-campus hospital provider-based departments (PBDs).

The American Hospital Association (AHA) issued an action alert urging members to ask their Senators to co-sign the letter. The South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations is also asking its members to contact Sen. Mike Rounds and Sen. John Thune requesting them to co-sign the letter.
