Alliance Letters Endorsing IPAB Repeal

02/15/2013

The Alliance of Specialty Medicine wrote Representatives Phil Roe (R-TN) and Allyson Schwartz (D-PA) endorsing H.R. 351, and Senator Cornyn (R-TX) endorsing S. 351.  Both bills would repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board or IPAB.

The Alliance strongly opposes the IPAB or any other board resulting in an inappropriate delegation of Congress’ oversight responsibilities. Significant health care decisions must not be made by a group of unelected, unaccountable individuals with little or no clinical expertise or the oversight required to protect access to care for America’s seniors.
