July 1, 2013: Energy & Commerce Chair and Health Subcommittee Chairs Send Follow-up Letter to CMS on Sequester Cut to Cancer Drugs

Created on: Monday, July 01, 2013

Energy & Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI), health subcommittee Chairman Joe Pitts (R-PA) and Vice Chairman Michael Burgess, MD (R-TX) sent a letter to CMS Administrator Tavenner prior to last Friday's hearing on Medicare drug reimbursement reform. The letter requests that the agency answer all questions posed in the April 19, 2013 letter that Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX) and 123 House colleagues sent to CMS about applying the sequester cut to Part B drugs. The agency responded on June 3, 2013 but neglected to answer all of the 7 specific questions posed in the letter of April 19.
