"Congressional passage of the SMART Act will help create a clear set of rules to help ensure swift settlements of claims and reduce waste and fraud costs for the Medicare Trust. The bill had strong bipartisan support, and NAMIC applauds both chambers for taking up the bill and passing it.
"The SMART Act helps consumers and insurers by clarifying a confusing system, and it reduces costs to the Medicare Trust Fund as well, a claim few other bills can make. At a time when Congress seems to struggle to find ways to work together, passing the SMART Act shows that sensible legislation can still be sent to the president's desk for his signature."
