FOPR Urges Congress to Continue Support for PCORI

On November 4, Friends of PCORI Reauthorization sent letters to the leadership of the Senate Finance Committee and the leadership to the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the House Ways and Means expressing continued support for a long-term reauthorization of PCORI. The letter highlights the important impact PCORI has on our health care system, specifically noting its value to older adults and the Medicare population. The letter also expresses concern about what the lack of new funding and the uncertainty surrounding short-term extensions will mean for PCORI’s ability to fund new research and the negative impact it will have on their ability to manage programs and ongoing operations.
