Creating Access to Residency Education Act of 2013 - Amends the Public Health Service Act to direct the Administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to make grants to or contracts with eligible partnerships between state or local governments and private entities to support the creation of new medical residency training programs or slots within existing programs in underserved states in which there is a low physician-resident-to-general-population ratio.

(1) a public or private entity contribution of one-third of the cost of the medical residency program or new slots in an existing program,
(2) a state or local government contribution of one-third, and
(3) a CMS contribution of one-third.
Requires the Administrator in awarding grants and contracts to give preference to eligible partnerships:
(1) in which the participating state has 20 or fewer medical residents per 100,000 population or the participating local government is within such a state,
(2) in which the state involved has a population over 15 million and less than 10% percent of the nation's residency slots, or

House Republican Conference Summary
The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.
No summary available.
House Democratic Caucus Summary
The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.
So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.
We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
