Sinema-Backed Bill Cuts Red Tape, Improves Access to Care for Arizona Seniors

Sep 18, 2019

WASHINGTON – Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema cosponsored the bipartisan Medicare Care Coordination Improvement Act to cut red tape that prevents physicians from coordinating treatment plans and providing Arizona seniors with high quality health care.  
“Arizona seniors deserve high quality health care. We’re cutting red tape so doctors can coordinate on treatment, lower costs, and provide Arizonans the care they need,” said Sinema. 
Currently, outdated regulations prevent physicians from coordinating with other health care providers on patient care or treatment plans. The Medicare Care Coordination Improvement Act gives the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services the authority to modernize those regulations and allow physicians who participate in Medicare Alternative Payment Models the ability to coordinate, lowering costs for Medicare and Arizona seniors while improving care .
