Our colleagues at ML Strategies have provided their Health Care Weekly Preview for the week of October 9, 2017. This week's preview discusses many topics, including the Trump administration's roll back of the ACA's mandate that employers cover birth control coverage. It also discusses Congress' work on health extenders, CHIP, and the community health centers program, among other things. The preview also touches on MedPAC's recommendation that CMS replace the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) which the group believes is too much of a burden on physicians.
