senate Bill S. 1362

Do Medicare and Medicaid Demonstration Programs Need More Flexibility?

Argument in favor

Giving the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovations more flexibility in waiving requirements would allow for demonstration projects that can lead to more efficient administration of the PACE program for the elderly.

Give policy makers the tools, data and resources to effect care improvement and lower cost.

It is important to use practices that have proven to work. Too many docs get into ways they gal back on. Drug companies have to much influence on prescribers.

Argument opposed

It doesn’t matter if these waivers are only for limited demonstration projects, they shouldn’t be granted, and the federal government shouldn’t experiment to try to improve the efficiency of the PACE program.

Waiving the requirements would only allow the GOP to further chip away at the program in hopes of getting rid of it altogether. The standards and requirements are there for a reason. To make sure certain things are provided, at a minimum.
