Medicare Trustees 2017 Report Indicates IPAB Will Not Be Triggered

The Medicare Trustees 2017 Report was released containing a slightly better projection for the solvency of the Medicare program than was previously expected, so the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) will not be triggered this year. The Trustees Report estimates that Medicare will become insolvent by 2029, which is one year later than the projection in the 2016 Trustees Report.

Advocacy efforts to repeal  the IPAB – an AACE legislative priority – are still ongoing. For more information on the IPAB Repeal effort and to send a message to your lawmakers urging IPAB repeal, click here.
