This time Congress is thinking of attaching limits on physician ownership to a bill to fund the Iraq War. The Senate Finance Committee approved a supplemental appropriations bill that would starkly limit physicians’ ability to buy into hospitals and other facilities in the future. It would grandfather existing owners, but the details are not clear. The House passed a very different version of the bill, which likely will draw a presidential veto.
