Tell Congress to repeal IPAB before it's too late

10/12/2017 4:59 PM | Rebekah Francis (Administrator)

The Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) could finally be coming to an end. Last week, the House Ways and Means Committee approved bipartisan legislation (H.R. 849) to repeal the IPAB, a cost containment tool mandated by the Affordable Care Act to convene if Medicare spending exceeds a specified liimit. The IPAB has significant power to make changes to Medicare spending, leaving little-to-no room for recourse if IPAB-mandated payment cuts are triggered.

It is paramount that Congress act now and pass this important legislation before future actuary reports trigger the IPAB and activate payment reductions to Medicare providers. Contact your member of Congress now via MGMA's Advocacy Center and urge lawmakers to support this important legislation.
