S. 861 would aim to reduce improper payments in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. CBO estimates that enacting the bill would increase revenues by $20 million over the 2016-2025 period. Because the legislation would affect revenues, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. Enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending.
S. 861 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
