ABSTRACT

Health Care-Related Expiring Provisions of the 117th Congress, First Session [June 14, 2021]   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Summary: "This report describes selected health care-related provisions that are scheduled to expire during the first session of the 117th Congress(i.e., during calendar year [CY] 2021). [...] This report focuses on two types of health care-related provisions[.] [...] The first, and most common, type of provision provides or controls 'mandatory spending,' meaning it provides temporary funding, temporary increases or decreases in funding (e.g., Medicare provider bonus payments), or temporary special protections that may result in changes in funding levels (e.g., Medicare funding provisions that establish a floor). The second type of provision defines 'the authority of government agencies or other entities to act,' usually by authorizing a policy, project, or activity. Such provisions also may temporarily delay the implementation of a regulation, requirement, or deadline or establish a moratorium on a particular activity. Expiring health care provisions that are predominantly associated with discretionary spending activities--such as discretionary authorizations of appropriations and authorities for discretionary user fees--are excluded from this report."
