Protecting Seniors' Access to Medicare Act of 2013

On January 23, 2013, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D., reintroduced legislation to shut down the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) that had been created by "Obamacare." The bill had over 83 original co-sponsors.

Why is this bill so important?

Because the IPAB is the infamous "Death Panel," so-named for having the power to over-rule your personal physician and deny Medicare payments for necessary medical procedures regardless of your doctor's recommendations.

Senator Jon Kyle, (R-AZ), during actual debate on Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare") , warned us about the IPAB, "Think about this a moment. Do you want Washington bureaucrats, such as those who brought you the AIG mess, making your health care decisions for you and your family?"

On reintroducing his bill to repeal the IPAB, Rep. Roe said, "As a physician with more than 30 years of experience, I find the ability of this board to intervene in the patient-doctor relationship particularly troubling. I believe my bill is a testament to the fact that members of Congress can put party politics aside, come together and do what's right for our seniors."

Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA), an original cosponsor, said, "Since its beginning, I have been troubled by the creation of this board, which would give authority to 15 unelected bureaucrats who have the power to decide what treatment is provided through Medicare."

Rep. Roe writes, "Among the worst parts of the [Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare"] ... the IPAB is an unelected, unaccountable bureaucracy that has been granted sweeping powers to 'reduce the per capita rate of growth in Medicare spending.' Medicare cuts proposed by the IPAB are to be considered using 'fast track' procedures and-absent a three-fifths vote of the Senate-Congress can only modify the type of cuts, not the amount. Should Congress fail to act on the board's recommendations, they automatically go into effect. To make matters worse, the IPAB is exempt from administrative or judicial review."

For more detailed information on the impact of the IPAB on your right to make health-care choices, it's relationship to The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute and the authority given the Secretary of Health and Human Services to make health-care decisions for you, read "More Evidence of 'Death Panels' in Obamacare" by Aaron Klein, January 5, 2013 for WND.
