The House on Tuesday unveiled a bipartisan proposal to permanently fix the Sustainable Growth Rate funding formula and transition Medicare toward value-based payments.

“This package is the best opportunity to turn the page on years of short-term fixes so that we can finally make the reforms we need to strengthen Medicare for our seniors,” Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, (R-WI), said in remarks accompanying the bill.

“This is real patient-centered reform—done in a bipartisan way—and I urge all of my colleagues to support it.”
