House Launches Project Aimed at Medicare Regulation Relief

Drew Thies

The House Ways and Means Health Subcommittee Chairman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) announced a new initiative to identify and modify Medicare regulations that are adversely affecting patient care. The program, “The Medicare Red Tape Relief Project,” will rely on stakeholders and aim to identify opportunities to reduce legislative and regulatory burdens on Medicare providers.

The program “will help members of our committee work hand-in-hand with doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals to identify areas where we can eliminate red tape and burdensome mandates that are driving up costs in the Medicare program,” Chairman Tiberi said in a statement announcing the initiative.

Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) applauded the announcement, saying that regulatory relief is of vital importance as more seniors age into the Medicare program and costs continue to rise.

AHCA looks forward to working with Chairman Tiberi toward his goal of identifying unnecessary regulations and improving patient care.
