Advising the Congress on Medicare issues

Public Meeting

December 10-11, 2015
Ronald Reagan Building, International Trade Center - Horizon Ballroom - 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

The Commission meets publicly in Washington, DC to discuss Medicare issues and policy questions and to develop and approve reports and recommendations to the Congress. At these meetings, staff present research and policy options for the Commissioners to discuss.

Meeting agendas and briefs are usually posted one week before the meeting. Transcripts and presentation slides are available 3 to 5 days after the meeting.

All Commission meetings include several opportunities for public comment. These times are noted on the meeting agenda. We also accept comments on our meeting agendas through email, beginning approximately one week before the meeting and for one week thereafter.  Due to the volume of comments we receive, we cannot acknowledge individual comments.

***Please note that space for audience members is limited, and the meeting room regularly fills to capacity. While we do our best to accommodate interested parties, attendees are admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees are encourage to arrive early to secure a seat.
