KHA Plays Key Role in Fight to Stop Site-Neutral Payment Legislation – Hospitals’ Potent Lobbying Message

Share

KHA has played a key role in gaining traction to stop site-neutral payment legislation by working alongside Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Rand Paul.

According to a new article from Axios, hospitals intensely lobbying to stop a bipartisan measure that would trim their Medicare payments are emphasizing how the policy may hobble already struggling rural hospitals.

The hospitals’ argument is apparently resonating in the Senate — raising further doubts about whether Congress can overcome pressure from a politically powerful lobby to enact modest Medicare savings.
