The House of Representatives yesterday passed by voice vote a bill (H.R. 1839) that contains a number of Medicaid provisions, including 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 also level civil monetary penalties against manufacturers that knowingly misclassify drugs under the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program, as advocated by the AHA.
