Senate Committee Approves CHRONIC Care Act of 2017

In early May 2017, the Senate Finance Committee approved S. 870, Creating High-Quality Results and Outcomes Necessary to Improve Chronic (CHRONIC) Care Act of 2017. This bipartisan initiative is intended to improve the care received by beneficiaries with chronic conditions by making several improvements to fee-for-service, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), including expanding the services that can be provided via telehealth. The legislation also calls for a report by the Government Accounting Office (GAO) on the impact of obesity drugs on patient health and Medicare spending. To read a summary of the bill, please click here.
