The independent agency that advises Congress and the administration on Medicare payment policies met last week in Washington, D.C.

Among the issues discussed at the meeting of the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission were:

  • the merit-based incentive payment system
  • telehealth
  • a redesign of Medicare’s hospital value incentive program

Many of the issues MedPAC addresses – including those noted above – are very important to private safety-net hospitals.
