<P>Capitol Hill Report Capitol Hill Report presents regular updates on legislative and regulatory actions and how the Academy ensures that the voice of neurology is heard on Capitol Hill. It is emailed to US members twice monthly and is posted at AAN.com/view/HillReport. Below are some recent highlights. Medicaid Bump Legislation In a big victory for the AAN before Congress summer recess, Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Committee filed a bill to extend the Childrens Health Insurance Program, including a provision to add neurology to an extension of the Medicaid bump through 2019. However, Senate Democrats introduced a bill that would extend the bump for two years but not add neurology. The office of Sen. Sharrod Brown (D-OH) told us the bill is a work in progress and we are taking comments, so they are aware of our concerns and we plan to participate fully in the debate. Both bills were introduced without Republican cosponsors and we have yet to talk with a Republican who is interested in extending the Medicaid bump. The provision is expensive—an estimated $5 billion for one year—and, since it is a part of Obamacare, Republicans have no problem letting it expire. But the point of the AANs efforts is that there is a crisis in the physician community, not just for primary care, but for everyone who primarily bills E/M codes. • 16 AANnews • September 2014 Public Policy RED: 15 AAN Science Award Ad—Half Page Horizontal> AN Placed in AANnews 8.25 x 5.25 +0.125 bleed, 4C 15AANscienceAward Adsall v305.indd 18/19/14 9:50 AM</p> <UL><LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/1/1/">Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/2/2/">Inside-Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/3/3/">Page-3</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/4/4/">Page-4</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/5/5/">Page-5</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/6/6/">Page-6</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/7/7/">Page-7</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/8/8/">Page-8</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/9/9/">Page-9</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/10/10/">Page-10</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/11/11/">Page-11</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/12/12/">Page-12</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/13/13/">Page-13</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/14/14/">Page-14</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/15/15/">Page-15</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/16/16/">Page-16</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/17/17/">Page-17</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/18/18/">Page-18</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/19/19/">Page-19</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/20/20/">Page-20</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/21/21/">Page-21</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/22/22/">Page-22</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/23/23/">Page-23</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/24/24/">Page-24</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/25/25/">Page-25</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/26/26/">Page-26</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/27/27/">Page-27</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/28/28/">Page-28</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/29/29/">Page-29</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/30/30/">Page-30</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/31/31/">Page-31</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/32/32/">Page-32</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/33/33/">Page-33</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/34/34/">Page-34</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/35/35/">Page-35</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/36/36/">Page-36</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/37/37/">Page-37</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/38/38/">Page-38</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/704/lhbdvotqg/39/39/">Back-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publications/704/x/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">site map</a></LI> </UL>
