MARC Coalition Applauds Passage of H.R. 4302, Deferring Implementation of the Murray-Ryan Medicaid “Allocation” Provision
The Medicare Advocacy Recovery Coalition (MARC) applauds the Congress for protecting Medicaid beneficiary rights with the recent passing of H.R. 4302, (SGR Doc Fix). Section 211 of this important legislation included a provision deferring until October 2016 the implementation of section 202(b) of the Murray-Ryan Budget Agreement, which negatively altered the balance of Medicaid secondary payer recoveries previously allowed by law. MARC members recently met with dozens of Congressional offices, urging House and Senate leaders to repeal Section 202(b) of the Murray-Ryan bill.
