In a large showing of bipartisan support, 48 members of the California congressional delegation co-signed a letter to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services opposing proposed changes to the Medicare area wage index, which is used to adjust Medicare payments for hospital outpatient and post-acute care services. CHA thanks Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-1) and Rep. Mike Thompson (D-5) for leading the effort, and thanks members for their response to the Advocacy Alert and outreach on this critical issue.
