WASHINGTON, D.C. – At a media availability on Capitol Hill today, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) expressed strong support for the “Medicare Red Tape Relief Project.” His statement came after Health Subcommittee Chairman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) announced this new initiative to reduce the Medicare regulations and mandates that too often stand in the way of delivering quality patient care.
Chairman Brady said:
“Chairman Tiberi – Chairman of the Health Subcommittee – announced today a new initiative … where we will be doing outreach to health care providers, doctors, nurses, hospitals, clinicians on what red tape and regulation out of Washington is interfering with the doctor-patient relationship, driving up the cost of health care, or simply getting in the way of the highest quality health care possible. And so Chairman Tiberi is going to be the one leading that effort. It will include soliciting ideas on what the Administration and executive branch can do, as well, and ultimately leading – we hope – to some action legislatively, as well.”
The Committee encourages doctors, nurses, clinicians, and other health care professionals – those who provide care to Medicare patients – to submit their feedback using the form below to WMProviderFeedback@mail.house.gov by August 25th.
