WASHINGTON, D.C. – With health care providers facing financial uncertainty in the wake of the COVID pandemic, Ways and Means Republicans are calling on Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA) to hold a hearing to examine payment changes that could impact health care professionals and patients’ access to care.
In a letter, the members wrote:
“As the legislative process for this crippling partisan tax and spending reconciliation bill has dragged on, we have observed that other critical end of year priorities have been added to the reconciliation framework. However, to date, the issues around provider reimbursement during the PHE have remained unaddressed.
“If the stability of health care providers is in fact still a priority for you, we urge you to follow through on your promise and hold a hearing that we can discuss a legislative path forward to maintain patient access to providers.”
