The House of Representatives yesterday voted 400-11 to pass a health care bill (H.R. 7127) that includes the ACE Kids Act, legislation that would allow state Medicaid programs to use a health home model to coordinate care for children with medically complex conditions. Among other provisions, the bill would level civil monetary penalties against manufacturers that knowingly misclassify drugs under the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program, as advocated by the AHA.
