Legislation introduced earlier this week in the U.S. Senate and House of Representative aims to alter Medicare GME funding caps for community hospitals starting new residency programs. If passed, the legislation would permit hospitals to establish new GME caps if they were originally based on training fewer than three full-time equivalent (FTE) resident rotators between October 1, 1997 and the date of the legislation’s enactment.

Similarly, the legislation would also permit community hospitals to establish new per-resident amounts if the programs were originally established based on training fewer than three FTE resident rotators between October 1, 1997 and the date of enactment.
