Neurosurgery Urges Congress to Repeal Ban on Physician-Led Hospitals

On July 27, the AANS and the CNS joined a coalition supporting the Patient Access to Higher Quality Health Care Act (S. 470/H.R. 977). Introduced in the Senate by Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) and in the House by Reps. Michael C. Burgess, MD, (R-Texas) and Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), the legislation would repeal the Affordable Care Act’s ban on physician-owned hospitals, enhancing patient choice and improving competition in the health care marketplace.
