In June, the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) released a report to Congress. MedPAC is a 17-member independent congressional agency established in 1997 to advise Congress on Medicare issues, which it does primarily through reports issued in March and June each year. Congress is not obligated to accept MedPAC's recommendations, but the reports often shape congressional debates and actions. This article focuses on five of the subject areas discussed in the latest report.
