MinnPost: "Klobuchar, Franken provisions included in Obama health care plan"

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

MinnPost reports that the quality of care value-index as a part of Medicare reimbursment formula will be included in President Obama's health care reform bill.

Two of the biggest legislative priorities for Minnesota Democrats like Amy Klobuchar, Al Franken, Betty McCollum and Tim Walz aren't anywhere to be found in the summary text of the White House health care plan released this morning, an omission that caused quite a few jitters on Capitol Hill. However, administration officials confirmed this afternoon that both provisions are indeed included in President Obama's plan.
