Public Law 108-173
Edited by: Michael Welsh
The Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 marks the greatest expansion of federal health care benefits for seniors and the disabled in nearly four decades. Among other matters, it created a new Medicare Part D, subsidizing prescription drug coverage for seniors, expands funding for rural hospitals, creates tax-free medical savings accounts, and sanctions HHS-approved drug imports from Canada. This legislative history gathers more than 170 documents that frame Congress’ intent in enacting this far-reaching legislation. The core documents, the law, committee reports, and floor debate are provided in five bound volumes. The full history, which also includes bills, hearings, and committee prints, is available on a full-text searchable DVD, which functions as a research powertool that allows users to quickly search for the specific authority to draft a winning brief or craft compelling arguments on proposed rules or legislation. It also serves as an invaluable resource for understanding this complex statute and explaining it to clients.
