What You Need to Know

As 2019 begins and a new Congress convenes, AACOM introduces its Public Policy Agenda for the 116th Congress, which reflects the federal advocacy priorities we will focus on to ensure that osteopathic medical education (OME) continues to be an active force in the formulation of national health and higher education policies. AACOM’s policy priorities include investing in graduate medical education (GME), supporting the physician workforce, addressing medical student debt, integrating osteopathic medicine into the nation’s federal research infrastructure, and advocating for osteopathic representation on federal committees and advisory boards. To provide membership with more information about our legislative and regulatory priorities, AACOM’s Office of Government Relations will host a webinar next month on the new public policy agenda and other topics relevant to the OME community.

Osteopathic medical schools and students are critical to the U.S. health care and medical education systems. AACOM remains committed to strongly advocating for policy priorities that support and serve the OME community well.

Pamela Murphy
Senior Vice President of Government Relations

 

Legislative Update

On The Hill

Federal Government Shutdown Update

The ongoing partial federal government shutdown has officially become the longest in the nation’s history, with portions of the government remaining closed as the shutdown that began on December 22 drags into the start of the 116th Congress. It affects nine of the 15 federal departments, representing roughly a quarter of discretionary funding for fiscal year (FY) 2019. The remaining departments, including the U.S. Departments of Defense, Education (USDE), Energy, Health and Human Services (HHS), Labor, and Veterans Affairs (VA), are not directly impacted by the shutdown, as they are already funded through September. Mandatory entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare are also unaffected.

Negotiations between the White House and Democrats, who now control the House of Representatives, have stalled over President Trump’s continued insistence that the legislation include $5 billion to fund a wall along the southern border. However, congressional Democratic leadership has stated that border security and immigration will remain separate from the current funding discussions until the shutdown ends.

Earlier this month, the House passed a spending package funding eight departments through September and temporarily funding the Department of Homeland Security through February 8 that did not include the President’s request for border wall funding. Last week, the House separately passed four FY19 spending bills included in the previously passed package with several Republicans’ support. The package would appropriate funds through September, and it also did not include border wall funding. These spending bills are expected to stand little to no chance of being introduced in the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has declared he will only take up a bill that the President publicly supports.

The White House is now possibly considering a national emergency declaration at the border for legal justification of the President’s funding for the wall, which would likely be taken up in court and challenged by congressional Democrats.

Bipartisan VA Bills to Protect Student Veterans Signed into Law

President Trump recently signed into law bipartisan legislation that would create new protections for student veterans facing GI Bill processing delays. One of the two bills, introduced by Senator John Boozman (R-AR) and Brian Schatz (D-HI), the Forever GI Bill Housing Payment Fulfillment Act of 2018 (PL 115-422), requires the VA to reimburse student veterans for missed or underpaid GI Bill housing benefits. The Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018 (PL 115-407), introduced by Senate VA Committee Ranking Member Jon Tester (D-MT), is comprised of 18 bipartisan bills that aim to address a variety of issues at the VA, including improved student veteran protection measures that would require the VA to provide electronic proof so student veterans receive a VA housing payment. The law also prohibits institutes of higher education from collecting late fees or requiring GI Bill recipients to take out additional loans due to delayed payments.

Regulatory Update

Administration and Federal Agencies

USDE Appoints AACOM Nominee to Negotiated Rulemaking Committee

The USDE recently appointed AACOM nominee Sue Huppert, Des Moines University Chief of External and Government Affairs, to serve as a negotiator on its newly established Negotiated Rulemaking Subcommittee on Distance Learning and Educational Innovation. The subcommittee is one of three that will make recommendations to the USDE’s Accreditation and Innovation Committee. The committee was formed to address the USDE’s recognition of accrediting agencies and related institutional eligibility issues, and it will begin its work today.

In addition, the USDE also appointed Janice Knebl, DO, MBA, Chair of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA)’s Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation, to the committee in representation of Programmatic Accrediting Agencies on the negotiated rulemaking panel. Dr. Knebl was nominated for this committee by the AOA with support from AACOM.

Texas Judge Strikes Down the Affordable Care Act

On December 14, 2018, a Texas District Court held that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was unconstitutional, striking down the entire ACA on the grounds that its mandate requiring people to buy health insurance is unconstitutional and the rest of the law cannot stand without it. U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor ruled that because Congress reduced the tax penalty of the individual mandate to zero dollars in 2017, the law could no longer be considered a valid exercise of Congress’ power to tax. As the Supreme Court relied on congressional authority to tax in finding the law constitutional in 2012, Judge O’Connor subsequently found that without that underpinned authority, the individual mandate could no longer be considered constitutional. In finding the entire law and not just the individual mandate unconstitutional, Judge O’Connor further held that the individual mandate was an essential and integral part of the ACA, and thus, the ACA could not constitutionally exist without the mandate. On December 30, Judge O’Connor ordered his ruling to be stayed during the pendency of the appeals process. Accordingly, the law will continue in force until the appeal is resolved.

The ruling is regarding a lawsuit filed this year by a group of Republican governors and state attorneys general. A coalition of Democrats from 17 states appealed the ruling to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals based in New Orleans. This case is expected to make its way to the Supreme Court.

Senate Confirms ONDCP Director

On January 2, the Senate confirmed James Carroll as the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). The ONDCP works to reduce drug use and its consequences by leading and coordinating the development, implementation, and assessment of U.S. drug policy. Mr. Carroll has served as Acting Director of the ONDCP since February 2018. Prior to the ONDCP, he served as Deputy to the White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, Special Assistant and Associate Counsel under the Bush Administration, Deputy General Counsel and Acting General Counsel at the Department of the Treasury, and as an attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice.

USDE Releases Higher Education Report

The USDE Office of Postsecondary Education released its “Rethinking Higher Education” white paper on December 19, 2018. The paper identified and acknowledged several issues in the higher education landscape, focusing on the value of a degree in the workplace relative to its cost, the higher education system’s failure to provide innovative solutions for non-traditional students, and the reliance on simplistic outcome metrics to assess institutional success. The white paper also highlights the growing burden of federal regulations and their negative impact on improved educational quality and on student preparation and outcomes. To remedy these issues, the Department proposes to reform the way student and institutional success is assessed, reduce or clarify regulatory burdens, and enable institutions and accreditors to explore non-traditional educational models. AACOM will continue to update its membership on developments from this report.

Congressional Budget Office Releases Annual Deficit Report

The Congressional Budget Office issued its “Options for Reducing the Deficit: 2019 to 2028,” which includes 121 proposals to decrease federal spending or increase federal revenues. The report identified certain areas for cuts in the education space, including changes to Pell Grant eligibility and add-ons, reduction or elimination of public service and graduate loan forgiveness, reduction or elimination of subsidized loans for undergraduate students, and the removal of the cap on interest rates for student loans. The report further identifies GME as an area of possible savings, proposing to consolidate or reduce federal payments for GME at teaching hospitals. The report is designed to inform lawmakers of the possible options for debt reduction available and makes no recommendations or endorsements.

Please see AACOM’s newly released Public Policy Agenda for the 116th Congress.

The ADEA AADSAS® Participating Dental Schools Required and Recommended Courses chart is a helpful resource for prospective dental school applicants to easily access required and recommended coursework. Traditionally, dental schools expect applicants to complete two semesters (three quarters) of biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry and physics. It’s important to know how dental schools differ on the additional classes they require, so we encourage students to thoroughly research each school they are interested in applying to for any additional prerequisites.
