H.R. 5676: SENIOR Communities Protection Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 5676 in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 5676 allows Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plans to suspend payments to a provider or supplier pending an investigation of a credible allegation of fraud against the provider or supplier. This is similar to the authority the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) already has for Medicare Fee-for-Service.
