Today, C3 joined with twenty-one groups to send a letter to Congressional leaders about ways Congress can improve the final health care reform bill to make high quality and affordable health care available to cancer patients.
House and Senate Leadership were back at the White House today for another day-long negotiation session aimed at reconciling differences between the House-passed and Senate-passed bills. President Obama is scheduled to met with Democrats this evening at the Democrats’ annual issues conference to talk about health care reform.
Congressional leaders are working to get a final compromise agreed to, and sent to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) by Friday. CBO will need 10-15 days to analyze the bill and put together a cost estimate. Members want to see a final cost estimate and analysis before voting on the package.
