by Andrew Mangione – With a new session of Congress fully underway, AMAC continues maintain a tight focus on legislative issues that pertain directly to mature Americans. Today, AMAC is pleased to announce support for a bipartisan bill sponsored by Representatives Diane Black (R-TN) and Richard Neal (D-MA). H.R. 3796, the “ Comprehensive Care Payment Innovation Act, ” seeks to provide quality, affordable health care for seniors in a manner that prioritizes patient outcomes and reduces costs for taxpayers. This bill employs a bundle payment program, allowing health care providers to treat a patient for an episode of care for the duration of that care. Bundle payments hold providers accountable for patient outcomes, incentivize efficient delivery of care, and generate greater health care savings overall. As our health care system continues to undergo significant transformations in response to ObamaCare, AMAC remains firmly committed to ensuring seniors have access to the care they need. We are proud to give our stamp of approval to H.R. 3796, as it works to encourage transparency and fiscal responsibility in our health care system.
