Maternity Access Bill Clears House Subcommittee

On September 13, the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health passed, by voice vote, the Improving Access to Maternity Care Act, H.R. 1209, sponsored by Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX).  

Among other provisions, the legislation would require the Health Resources and Services Administration to identify areas with maternity health care shortages and to review these designations annually.

The subcommittee held a hearing on this bill on December 9, 2015 (see The Source, 12/11/15).
