APA Science Government Relations News Update:
Affordable Care Act revision leaves science largely untouched
Psychological research funded through the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute is not being considered among proposed changes…so far.
The Republican leadership of the House of Representatives has just rolled out its plan to revise the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and while in a letter to the Chairs of the two Committees who have so far passed the bill, APA has expressed broad concerns about the new bill, the provision of ACA that funds research, the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), appears to be under the radar for now.
