Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
An Update On The Puerto Rico Statehood Admission Process Act April 22, 2015
Pedro Pierluisi, D-PR
"If you want to understand why patients in Puerto Rico received inadequate care, why physicians and hospitals are not fairly compensated, and why the cost of providing health care is disproportionately borne by the Puerto Rico Government rather than shared equitably with the Federal Government, you must grasp that Puerto Rico is treated in a discriminatory fashion under Medicaid, traditional Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and the Affordable Care Act."
Justice For Victims Of Trafficking Act Of 2015—Resumed April 14, 2015
Maria Cantwell, D-WA
"Physicians in my State and others are innovating by partnering with high-performing Medicare Advantage plans. This model can grant the health care provider significant accountability and ownership of a patient’s health, with the result of achieving impressive health outcomes, reducing overlap and duplication, and saving money for everyone involved."
Appointment Of Conferees On S. Con. Res. 11, Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 April 14, 2015
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"Folks love their Medicare, Mr. Speaker, but they don’t love it as much as they love their Medicare Advantage. Have you seen those numbers? Folks love their Medicare Advantage. For the first time in Medicare history, we gave patients choice. It is the most popular program in Medicare."
Medicare Access And Chip Reauthorization Act April 14, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"The reality is, when you abolish this flawed Medicare reimbursement system and start promoting coordinated care, what would happen in the State of New Hampshire is you would start seeing teams—perhaps a nurse, a physician, a pharmacist—a team in New Hampshire or in Oregon come together, particularly where there aren’t the Medicare Advantage plans, and say we can give, as our colleague from Georgia noted not long ago, Senator Isakson, better care at lower cost and do it for what is likely to be the type of health care services that dominates Medicare in the future, which is chronic disease. We will be better able to tackle that with the abolition of SGR."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The National Labor Relations Board March 4, 2015
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"In my home State, we had a goal to enroll 70,000 new individuals through private insurance and Medicaid, and we hit over 200,000. But the good news doesn’t stop there. According to a new report since the ACA was passed, 9.4 million people with Medicare saved $15 billion on prescription drugs, an average of about $1,600 per beneficiary. For preventive care, there are 39 million people with Medicare and Medicare Advantage who took advantage of at least one preventive service with no cost sharing in 2014. That is why the Times, USA TODAY, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, and Politico are saying the simple message that now, more than ever, Americans understand the Affordable Care Act is working."
