Mayo Clinic President and CEO John Noseworthy, M.D., issued the following statement in reaction to the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s vote to approve Medicare payment legislation that would repeal the Sustainable Growth Rate and lead to a reimbursement system focused on health care quality:

“Mayo Clinic commends the House Energy and Commerce Committee for its unanimous bipartisan vote to address this challenging issue.  Mayo is committed to working with Congress to establish a payment system that is flexible and adaptable to the varying needs of patients, and  that ensures quality, efficiency and better outcomes for patients.”
