GOP Aims to Repeal IPAB Portion of Health Care Reform Bill

One of the centerpieces for Medicare savings in the Health Care Reform bill was the introduction of an Independent Payment Advisory Board.  This 15-member board would have pretty broad power to set payment rates for providers.  In order for Congress to block cuts proposed by IPAB, they would have to not only have to vote to block the change BUT ALSO would need to find equivalent savings elsewhere.
