HOUSE-SENATE SHOWDOWN ON CHIP-OWNERSHIP BILL

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.
