HOUSE-SENATE SHOWDOWN ON CHIP-OWNERSHIP BILL
The U.S. House of Representatives and Senate have both passed bills reauthorizing and expanding the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). But the House version puts heavy restrictions on physician ownership of hospitals. They’ll iron out their differences in a conference committee. We’re asking TMA members to use our Grassroots Action Center to tell Congress to pass the CHIP bill without the ownership limits.
