Medicare Patient Empowerment Act Re-Introduced
Representative Tom Price (R-6th-GA) has re-introduced the Medicare Patient Empowerment Act (H.R. 1310). Like the bill from the 112th Congress, H.R. 1310 would allow patients and physicians to enter into private contracts for services covered by Medicare without penalty to the patient or physician. A Senate companion bill (S. 236) has been introduced by Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK).
