H.R. 1063, Strengthening Medicare and Repaying Taxpayers Act of 2011

Cost Estimate

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce on September 20, 2012

H.R. 1063 would modify the process through which the Medicare program is reimbursed when another payer (for example, a liability insurer) is responsible for a beneficiary’s medical costs. In general, the provisions of H.R. 1063 would make it easier for other payers to repay Medicare, thus reducing program costs.
