Medicare Payment Advisory Commission Discusses Growth in Medicare Spending

During the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) meetings this week, the commission discussed growth in Medicare spending.

The commission agreed to focus the 2019–2020 cycle on discussing solutions to ensure the Medicare trust funds remain solvent.
