Public Meeting

September 8-9, 2016

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.
