WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Ander Crenshaw, Chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government, today (3/26) supported passage of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (H.R. 2). The bipartisan, bicameral legislation replaces Medicare’s sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula with permanent, patient-centered reforms that improve health care delivery for generations to come.

“Ending the annual ‘doc fix’ crisis stops the cycle of enacting patchwork fixes to a flawed system once and for all,” said Crenshaw. “Strengthening Medicare for current and future seniors, saving taxpayers millions of dollars, easing burdens on our physicians, and promoting innovation form the foundation of this landmark bill and make common-sense. I have long supported replacing band aid fixes with permanent solutions. I am proud to have helped deliver them and strongly urge my colleagues in the United States Senate to do the same.”

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act passed the House by a vote of 392-37 and now moves to the United States Senate.
