Rep. Joe Heck: Let's give seniors the peace of mind they deserve

124 views 1 month ago
I rise in support of H.R. 4015.

I have always stated that the number one threat to Medicare and seniors' access to healthcare is the flawed SGR formula.

At no time prior have we been so close, in a bipartisan, bicameral way to ensuring our seniors have access to the healthcare providers of their choosing.

And now, when we are so close, is not the time to derail the progress being made using controversial pay-fors.

I will vote in favor of H.R. 4015 today -- because of the policy changes it represents.

I ask my friends on the other side of the aisle to vote Aye, so we can send this bill to the Senate.

And I call on the Senate to pass legislation that includes the agreed to policy provisions with a pay-for of their choosing.

Then let's go to conference and fix the SGR once and for all.

Providing stability and predictability for healthcare providers will result in stability and predictability for our seniors.

And passing SGR reform now is the fiscally responsible thing to do.

The longer we delay, the more it will cost.

Let's give seniors the peace of mind they deserve -- that they will be able to see the Medicare provider of their choice.

Let's pass H.R. 4015. Show less
