AAHKS Calls for Repeal of IPAB

AAHKS joined medical specialty societies in a letter to the U.S. Congress asking to repeal the Medicare Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). “The Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), not only poses a threat to that access but also, once activated, will shift healthcare costs to consumers in the private sector and infringe upon the decision making responsibilities and prerogatives of the Congress. We request your support to repeal IPAB,” the letter states. Read the full letter.
