       (a) Findings.--The Senate finds the following:
       (1) The Affordable Care Act ismoving the health care system 
     of the United States from a fee-for-service system that 
     frequently incentivizes theoverutilization of health care 
     services and wasteful health care spending to a value- and 
     performance-based health care systemthat promotes patient-
     centered and team-based care to keep Americans as healthy as 
     possible, improve health outcomes, and lowerhealth care 
     costs.
       (2) Because of the investments in health care delivery 
     system reforms made by the Affordable Care Act, athird of 
     Medicare payments to health care providers are now based on 
     the overall quality of patient care and health 
     outcomesachieved by such providers.
       (b) Point of Order.--It shall not be in order in the Senate 
     to consider any bill, jointresolution, motion, amendment, 
     amendment between the Houses, or conference report that would 
     change the Medicare program, theMedicaid program, or the 
     number of Americans enrolled in private health insurance 
     coverage, in a manner that would result inreduced revenue to 
     hospitals, health care centers, and physicians and other 
     health care providers, thereby reducing theirinvestments in 
     health care delivery system reforms that improve patient 
     health outcomes and reduce costs.

     suspended in the Senate only by an affirmative vote of three-
