Geee Posted July 17, 2014 Share Posted July 17, 2014 Heritage Foundation: House Republicans propose to roll back major cuts in Medicare home health services, saying they want to help senior citizens and other Americans who face decreases in both care and jobs. A bill introduced yesterday by Reps. Greg Walden, R-Ore., and Tom Price, R-Ga., would repeal the Obamacare-inspired cuts of 14 percent imposed by then-Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. In place of the cuts, set to take place over four years, Walden’s bill would reward home health agencies for providing high-value care to patients. In a statement announcing the bill, called the Securing Access Via Excellence for (SAVE) Medicare Home Health Act, Walden said: We’ll get more for our money and better care for patients without these cuts across the board. This common-sense bill will stop the administration’s cuts to home health care, and allow … seniors to continue to receive the care they need and that depend on. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
