The House overwhelmingly passed the Medicare physician-reform bill, also known as the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) “doc fix”, on Thursday afternoon by a vote of 392-27, with 212 Republicans and 108 Democrats voting in favor of the legislation. The bill, which we outlined in more detail in an earlier update, will phase in a new payment system over the next few years that will focus on rewarding doctors who provide high-value—as opposed to high-volume—care. It will also extend funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for another two years.

On March 31, 2015, the current “patch” for SGR will expire. The Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula, which was first implemented in 1997, calls for automatic reductions in Medicare reimbursement rates for providers if overall Medicare spending exceeds a target rate. Without further action by Congress to temporarily avoid the cuts or permanently replace the flawed formula, providers will face a 25% cut in reimbursements beginning April 1, 2015.

Today, President Obama released his $4.066 trillion budget proposal for fiscal year (FY) 2016, outlining the administration’s policy priorities for the coming year, which is largely viewed as a Democratic blueprint for lofty policy proposals that will face strong opposition by the Republican-controlled Congress.

Today, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) issued their draft nationwide health IT interoperability roadmap titled: Connecting Health and Care for the Nation: A Shared Nationwide Interoperability Roadmap Version 1.0. This draft was referenced by Kelly Cronin at the National Transitions of Care Summit this past December. Today’s release is a continuation of the commitment to building a more robust health IT structure as part of a Department-wide effort to achieve better care, smarter spending, and improve health outcomes by improving our health care delivery system.

About NTOCC

The National Transitions of Care Coalition is a 501(c)(4) organization dedicated to addressing a serious U.S. health care issue: filling the gaps that occur when patients leave one care setting and move to another care setting. These transitions include patients moving from primary care to specialty physicians; moving or transferring patients from the emergency department to intensive care or surgery; and when patients are discharged from the hospital to home, assisted living arrangements, or skilled nursing facilities. The U.S. health care system often fails to meet the needs of patients during these transitions because care is rushed and responsibility is fragmented, with little communication across care settings and multiple providers.

Since 2006, NTOCC’s Advisors Council of over 30 organizations has shared a common goal of improving the quality of Transitions of Care. Working in conjunction with 450 Associate Member organizations and over 3,000 individual professional subscribers, NTOCC has developed tools and resources made available to everyone in the health care industry including providers, payers, patients and consumers. NTOCC’s mission is supported by the Partners Council made up of innovative companies leading critical change in health care coordination.
