Category: Medicaid, Statement

FAH President and CEO Chip Kahn released the following statement after the announced Congressional spending package:

“The end of year congressional spending package appropriately delays Medicaid DSH cuts and funds other important health care extenders.

“Congress is acting prudently to allow time to develop sound policy to protect patients from surprise bills and lower prescription drug costs.

“We stand ready to work with lawmakers in the new year on these important issues to help patients and lower their costs.”
