ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a panel set up by the U.S. Congress to monitor Medicare expenses. It says that IPAB is the result of health care legislation, and has the power to suggest practices which may come into law. IPAB's other cited function is to enforce the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) by curtailing the rising costs of health care. This is to be done by setting target rates of growth on an annual basis based on the consumer price index and the gross domestic product (GDP) plus 1%.
