Legislative Victory

On April 15, President Obama signed legislation reforming Medicare reimbursements, in the process enacting critical standard of care protections for which PIAA has long advocated. The new statute contains language to ensure that federal healthcare metrics and reimbursement guidelines may not be misused in claims of liability, thus preserving local standards of care. PIAA lobbying efforts were critical in both negotiating the final language and in linking the provision to Medicare reforms.
