Employer, Medicare Provisions of House Health Care Reform Detailed in New CCH Briefing
Date:11/13/2009

cal expansion in teaching hospitals has been in subspecialty medicine, while family practice residency programs and three-year training programs that emphasize a generalist training have decreased or have closed," Clark noted. "The premise is that primary care physicians can deliver more care, at a lower cost."

One wasteful program targeted in the legislation is an optional lump-sum payment for power wheelchairs at the time one is first supplied, rather than rental over a 13-month period.

"Many wheelchairs purchased by Medicare during the first month of use are not used beyond the 13-month rental period," Clark said. "Under the House bill, Medicare will continue to pay for wheelchairs for 13 months; then beneficiaries can return the equipment or purchase it."

The House bill also mandates studies of possible savings and improved quality, allocates more money to combating fraud and abuse and expands eligibility for Medicaid.

"Dozens of changes have been proposed," Clark said. "Many of them may eventually be enacted even if health care reform as a whole is unsuccessful."
