Senators Announce Chronic Care Working Group

Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Ron Wyden (D-OR), the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Finance Committee, recently announced the creation of a bipartisan chronic care working group.  The Chairman and Ranking Member also announced that Committee members, Senators Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and Mark Warner (D-VA), have been appointed to co-lead the effort.

The purpose of the working group is to assess current law and develop potential policy and legislative solutions to improve chronic care. 

“As the Finance Committee looks to develop solutions that improve health outcomes for Medicare patients with chronic conditions, we intend to proceed carefully.
