AAHP pushes Medicare+Choice reform. (Short Takes).
The AAHP wants Congress to undo the damage done by the 1997 Balanced Budget Act. According to the Association, last year's Balanced Budget Refinement Act was a step in the right direction, but did not go far enough. The Association estimates that more than 700,000 beneficiaries have had their coverage disrupted and millions more have experienced increased out-of-pocket costs and reduced benefits as a result of the BBA.
