President, Congress heat up healthcare reform efforts

Share this article:
President Obama and top lawmakers will intensify healthcare reform efforts next week, both in Washington and on the road. Reform measures under discussion potentially have wide-ranging implications for long-term care providers. First, Obama will return to his hometown of Chicago for just the second time since being sworn in. On Monday, he'll address the American Medical Association's policy-making House of Delegates. He'll be the first president to formally address the influential doctors' group since 1983. Then, at mid-week, Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT), the chairman of the Finance Committee, plans to begin weeklong negotiations in committee on healthcare reform legislation.
