Policy Update- Weeks of 5/18 & 5/25

posted on

In the Health Reform Update for the past two weeks, a key House committee unanimously passes the 21st Century Cures initiative to expedite the approval of rare disease drugs.  The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issues a long-awaited “uber rule” that would cap profits for Medicaid managed care plans.  The governing board for Covered California approves new limits on prescription drug costs for 2016 consumers, while CMS’ offer to more slowly phase-out Florida’s Low-Income Pool funding may help to break that state’s impasse over Medicaid expansion.
