House Ways & Means Health Subcommittee to Hold Medicare Advantage Hearing June 7

June 1, 2017

The Health Subcommittee of the House Ways and Means Committee has scheduled a June 7 hearing on Medicare Advantage that will focus on Special Needs Plans (SNPs), the Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®), and emerging value-based insurance design models, InsideHealthPolicy.com has reported.

The Senate Finance Committee recently passed a Medicare chronic care bill that would expand testing of the value-based insurance design model and permanently authorize dual-eligible SNPs, chronic condition SNPs and institutional SNPs. Finance Committee chair Orrin Hatch (R-UT) expects the House Ways and Means Committee to take up the legislation if it passes the Senate.

“With billions invested each year, it’s important to ensure these programs are not only in the best interest of the Medicare population but also the best interest of taxpayers and future beneficiaries," said Health Subcommittee chair Pat Tiberi (R-OH). "I look forward to hearing from our witnesses about the challenges associated with serving high-cost, high-need Medicare beneficiaries and the benefits that integrated care and value-based models can provide.”

The House Ways and Means Committee invites the public to submit a statement or letter for the record.
