The Alliance of Specialty Medicine sent a letter to the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee thanking them for taking action on H.R. 849, the Protecting Seniors Access to Medicare Act of 2017, a bill to repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board or IPAB.  The Alliance has been opposed to the IPAB since its inclusion in the Affordable Care Act because it is an inappropriate delegation of Congress′ oversight responsibilities over the Medicare budgeting decisions.
