PFM

PFM's partners represent the interests of a variety of people – the elderly, disabled, chronically ill, and those living in rural settings – many of whom rely on Medicare. In the wake of the recent government shutdown, pressure on Congress to reach agreement and pass a budget before the end of the year will arguably be stronger than ever, and PFM and its partners fear that Medicare will, once again, become a target for indiscriminate cuts. While we understand the urgency to address budgetary pressures and avoid additional futurestalemates, we believe it would be a mistake to do so at the expense of the Medicare program. What the Medicare program needs now, more than ever, is meaningful, comprehensive reform that addresses its flaws, promotes and enhances successful features and promising developments across the program and strengthens program integrity.
