The House Energy and Commerce Committee approved five pieces of public health legislation including The Ensuring Terminated Providers Are Removed from Medicaid and CHIP Act (H.R. 3716) which addresses the problem of health care providers terminated from Medicaid in one state who still participate in Medicaid and CHIP programs in other states. The Medicaid Directory of Caregivers Act (H.R. 3716) would require state Medicaid programs that operate under fee-for-service and/or primary care case management programs include a directory of physicians who served Medicaid patients in the prior 12 months on the Medicaid program's website. The bills now await consideration by the full chamber.
