Administration Regulatory Reform To Save Health System $5 Billion

Today the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services proposed new rules to reduce unnecessary, obsolete, and burdensome regulations. The changes, part of the Obama administration’s larger effort to cut unnecessary regulations, would save healthcare providers nearly $1.1 billion each year and over $5 billion over 5 years. Republicans repeatedly attacked the administration over health care regulations, comparing them to Hurricane Katrina.
