Title III. Improving the Quality and Efficiency of Health Care
Protecting Medicare Benefits
The Act will make sure that doctors and health care experts, not members of Congress, have the primary responsibility of finding ways to protect Medicare benefits for America’s seniors.
It creates an independent group of doctors and health care experts tasked with presenting their best ideas to improve the quality of Medicare and reduce costs for Medicare beneficiaries. To make sure that America’s seniors on Medicare are protected, all ideas that ration care, raise taxes or beneficiary premiums, or change Medicare benefit, eligibility, or cost-sharing standards will be banned.
