Ways and Means Health Subcommittee Chairman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) and Congressman Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) introduced the Medicare Part B Home Infusion Services Temporary Transitional Payment Act. This bill creates a new transitional payment structure for providers of home infusion services before policies signed into law in the 21st Century Cures Act take effect in 2021.

"Congressman Bill Pascrell and I introduced this bipartisan legislation to protect access to infused medications for vulnerable beneficiaries," said Tiberi. "It ensures that providers will receive necessary resources during the transition period until 2021 so that patients can continue to receive the home infusion therapies they need in the comfort of their homes."

"I am pleased to introduce the Medicare Part B Home Infusion Services Temporary Transitional Payment Act with my friend Congressman Pat Tiberi," said Pascrell. "This bill will help ease the transition to more accurate payments for home infusion drugs, ensuring that patients maintain appropriate access until Medicare implements a new home infusion nursing benefit in 2021."
