House Republican Health Professionals Send Letter Opposing IPAB

Thursday, June 02, 2011

Republican health professionals in the House of Representatives, including all of the Republican physicians, sent a letter to President Barack Obama calling for the elimination of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB).  The individuals who signed the letter have more than 500 years combined of clinical experience safeguarding the health and welfare of patients.

The letter states, “IPAB is not a sufficient or appropriate solution to reforming Medicare. Rather it is a blunt tool that ignores the needs of individual patient...As doctors and nurses, we all agree that a Medicare reform plan based on a one-size-fits-all economic model that prioritizes cutting areas of growth over the needs of individual patients is discriminatory. Simply put, creating a health care rationing board to cut patients and provider rates will make it harder for those in need to find the care and life savings treatments they require.”

H.R. 452, legislation that would repeal IPAB, has 122 cosponsors including 3 Democrats. ASA continues to oppose the IPAB.
