BIAA Comments on Medicare Post-Acute Care Value-Based Purchasing Act of 2015 (H.R. 3298)

22-Sep-2016

The Brain Injury Association of America stands firm in its commitment to ensure every individual suffering an injury to the brain - regardless of type, cause, or severity - will receive adequate care. BIAA recently provided written comments to members of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Ways and Means regarding H.R. 3298, otherwise known as the Medicare Post-Acute Care Value-Based Purchasing Act of 2015. Specifically, BIAA believes that H.R. 3298 places too much emphasis on efficiency in post-acute treatment spending and will have the likely consequence of driving patients to cheaper, less intense rehabilitation settings regardless of their medical and functional needs.
