Legislators Sign Letters Urging CMA Flexibility During Implementation of HOPD Rule
Wednesday, October 26, 2016 8:40 AM
Kentucky's U.S. Congressmen Andy Barr, Thomas Massie and Hal Rogers signed the House of Representatives Dear Colleague letter and Senator Mitch McConnell wrote his own personal letter to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) urging the importance of flexibility during the proposal to implement part of the Bipartisan Budget Act (BiBA) of 2015 concerning the treatment of off-campus outpatient departments.
The letters expressed concern that implementation of the rule could seriously impact rural states, such as Kentucky, and would limit access to care in already underserved areas.
Please take the time to thank the Senator and your Congressman for their support of hospitals in Kentucky.
