Floor Action on H.R. 4302, the "Protecting Access to Medicare Act"
On March 27, 2014, the House debated H.R. 4302, the "Protecting Access to Medicare Act." This bill provides a 12-month patch to the flawed Medicare physician reimbursement formula, averting a nearly 24% cut to Medicare physician payments that would occur on April 1, 2014. This bill does not provide a permanent fix to the problem.
The House passed H.R. 4302 by a voice vote.
