The Federation of American Hospitals applauds the Members of Congress who voted today in support of The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (H.R. 2).  This overwhelming and bipartisan vote is a strong message of support for current and future Medicare patients and their caregivers.

With the passage of this legislation, seniors are one step closer to ensuring they will have access to the essential care they need when they need it.

The FAH and our more than 1100 hospitals urge the Senate to swiftly pass H.R. 2.
