140+ Groups Support H.R. 5741
In a letter to members of Congress, more than 140 organizations representing patients, healthcare providers and retirees are urging passage of bipartisan legislation that would institute new safeguards around demonstration projects administered by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI), saying that “too many CMMI models endanger patient access to healthcare providers and medically necessary treatments and create unnecessary obstacles for vulnerable patients.”
The organizations are endorsing the “Strengthening Innovation in Medicare and Medicaid Act” (H.R. 5741), introduced last month by Representatives Terri Sewell (D-AL) and Adrian Smith (R-NE).
