CHA asks hospital leaders to contact their congressional representatives soon in support of the Medicare Audit Improvement Act of 2013 (H.R. 1250). The California delegation has continued to add co-sponsors to the legislation, but there is still time to add more. Today, Gretchen Case, director of compliance at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, participated in a congressional staff briefing in Washington, D.C., about the legislation. Today’s briefing presents an opportunity for hospital leaders to now follow up with congressional staff on this important topic. For more information on the bill, see CHA’s March 21 Advocacy Alert at www.calhospital.org/support-changes-rac-program. Current California H.R. 1250 cosponsors include Reps. Julia Brownley, Jim Costa, Susan Davis, Sam Farr, Jared Huffman, Doug LaMalfa, Barbara Lee, Zoe Lofgren, Alan Lowenthal, Buck McKeon, Devin Nunes, Ed Royce, Raul Ruiz, Adam Schiff, Jackie Speier, Loretta Sanchez and David Valadao.
