Above are the initial paragraphs of the MedPAC News Release regarding the March 2021 Report to Congress. This is a 3-page News Release that summarizes their recommendations.
The Executive Summary is 18 pages.
The entire Report to Congress is 531 pages in length. (I remember the days when I received these MedPAC reports via USPS mail.)
I’ve excerpted the Table of Contents for your preview. As you can see, there’s something for everyone. I recommend that you review the Executive Summary as well as the Chapters that are applicable to you as a provider. I also encourage you to look at the other Chapters to learn more about those entities. Medicare funding/reimbursement is really a village, so to speak. We all treat and care for Medicare beneficiaries and that number continues to grow with Baby Boomers as well as the generations coming behind them.
