CALL CONGRESS ON CHIP-OWNERSHIP BILL
The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) deserves to be reauthorized and expanded. But that’s no excuse for Congress to put heavy restrictions on physician ownership of hospitals. The House already passed a bill, HR 2, that does both. The Senate is expected to vote today on a measure that would reauthorize CHIP without the ownership restrictions.
