MedPAC April 2017 Meeting Report

April 13, 2017

By: Tony L. Mitchell

The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) convened last week for a third and final time before its summer hiatus. Commissioners revisited a number of topics from the March meeting, provided draft recommendations centered on Part B drug payments and post-acute care payment reform, and began exploration of provider consolidation and its impact on Medicare costs and access. 

The District Policy Group attended the meeting. To provide you with the meeting’s key takeaways, we developed a memo and recorded our second Unpacking MedPAC podcast.
