    Today the Senate joined the House of Representatives in passing the 21st Century Cures Act, a $6.3 billion package of medical innovation bills that includes $4.8 billion to the National Institutes of Health as well as $1 billion in state grants to fight opioid abuse. The legislation contains a number health IT-related provisions including reducing administrative and regulatory burdens related to the use of EHRs, improving the EHR certification process by focusing on product security and user-centered design, the ability to share patient data, and ensuring that real world testing of the software has been conducted. The Act also calls for the creation of a voluntary EHR certification program for medical specialties for which no certified technology currently exists (i.e., pediatrics). Improving interoperability is also emphasized in the Act, with a mandate to develop and support a trusted framework for exchange of health information between networks, conduct a study on patient matching, and take steps to fight health information “blocking.” President Obama is expected to sign the legislation.

    Medicare Part B’s monthly premiums for one-third of Medicare beneficiaries will increase about 10% in 2017 to $134 from $121.80 in 2016. About 70% of beneficiaries will be “held harmless” from the increase due to a lower than usual Social Security cost-of-living adjustment. For beneficiaries held harmless, the average 2017 premium will be about $109, up from $104.90. The annual deductible for all Medicare Part B beneficiaries will be $183 in 2017, compared to $166 in 2016. Read the CMS announcement.
