Washington DC- U.S. Rep. Gregg Harper released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed H.R. 2, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015:

“Every year since 2003, Medicare’s flawed physician payment formula has jeopardized payments to doctors and created uncertainty in seniors’ access to high quality care. With short-term fixes, Congress has for years not met this challenge with a real solution,” said Harper. “This legislation was overwhelmingly adopted because it provides a permanent solution to this flawed formula, and will provide long-term structural changes needed to keep Medicare solvent.”
