1) “Senators Introduce Bill to Open Up Access to Medicare Database” By: iHealthBeat Friday, April 8, 2011 2) Senators of Iowa and Oregon are introducing a bill that would allow the Medicare Database to be shared with the federal government. Federal investigators can use the database to detect fraud from individual physicians being paid by Medicare. However, the American Medical Association wants to conceal this information away from the federal government. 3) If this bill gets passed, I suspect that health care providers will get affected along with the medical industry. 4) If this database reveals fraud and abuse in Medicare, consumers will be more aware when making medical decisions and allow the federal government to be more alert in spending money for Medicare. This would be resolving the issue by action because the senators are repealing 1979 court injunction that bars the government from revealing the amount individual physicians are being paid by Medicare.
