After facing yet another shutdown, Congress came together to strike a deal on the federal budget. This bill not only stabilizes the federal budget over the next two years, but also includes several provisions that have been a priority for the American Osteopathic Profession. The package:

  • Extends CHIP for an additional 4 years (10 years total)
  • Repeals the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB)
  • Provides technical fixes to the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act
  • Reauthorizes the following programs for two years:
    1. Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education (THCGME)
    2. National Health Service Corps (NHSC)
    3. Community Health Centers (CHC)
