Independent Payment Advisory Board and Medicare Cuts Health care industry representatives talked about the role of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). IPAB is a 15-member agency created by the Affordable Care Act to recommend cost-cutting measures for Medicare if projected spending exceeds a target growth rate. Since the passage of the ACA in 2010 through 2016, IPAB formation had not been triggered, but some experts believe it would be triggered in 2017.

The panelists discussed the potential negative effects of IPAB formation, and made suggestions for better alternatives to achieve Medicare savings, including what might be achieved via bipartisan legislation from Congress. close
