Public Meeting

November 1-2, 2012
Ronald Reagan Building, The International Trade Center

New opportunity for stakeholder comment on MedPAC deliberations

MedPAC’s policies and recommendations are informed by our analytic work, but also by input from Medicare’s various stakeholders. In addition to meeting with stakeholders directly, and obtaining input from comments made at our public meetings, we are now soliciting comments on our agenda via our website. 

You may submit comments pertinent to our agenda beginning when the agenda for each meeting is made public, and for one week thereafter. In submitting your comments, please include your name and affiliation. Due to the volume of comments we receive, we cannot acknowledge individual comments, nor can we guarantee that comments will be specifically reflected in our work products. However, please be assured that your input will be given all due consideration.

The agenda will be provided here when available, usually about one week before the meeting.
