On the Hill

Priority Bills for April 17 - 21

If you've been following along with the weekly e-Physicians and watching the bill tracker, you can see that many of the bills have been finalized, or are still waiting to be either signed or vetoed by the Governor.

One important bill that NDMA is paying attention to is SB 2012 - the Health and Human Services Budget. When it comes to physician payment rates, Medicaid Expansion has been the talk of the town. The House appropriations is intending to cut payments to providers, which results in a great financial impact. Stay tuned.


Bill Tracker

NDMA is following over 160 bills that have the potential to impact health care. The bill tracker to review the status and NDMA's position on the bills is located on NDMA's website.
