H.R. 3607: To authorize the Secretary of the Interior to establish fees for medical services provided in units of the National Park System, and for other purposes.

H.R. 3607 authorizes the Department of the Interior to establish and collect fees for medical services provided to persons in units of the National Park System. The bill establishes the National Park Medical Services Fund, to consist of donations and the fees collected for such services and to be available to Interior for:

providing such services;
preparing programmatic analyses and developing management plans for medical facilities, equipment, vehicles, and other needs for, and costs of, such services;
providing training related to furnishing such services; and
obtaining or improving medical facilities, equipment, vehicles, and other needs and costs of such services.

Under current law, NPS has the authority and responsibility to provide medical services, but does not have authority to retain revenues from insurance payments or other payments, which go to the general Treasury. NPS does not collect fees directly but instead works with third-party agencies to bill insurance companies or individuals. The ability to retain revenues to offset the costs of medical services would help NPS to provide higher quality patient care with industry-standard equipment and technology. H.R. 3607 allows the Secretary of the Interior to establish and collect fees for medical services provided at national parks.

Introduced: Jul 28, 2017
Status: Ordered Reported on Nov 30, 2017

The committees assigned to this bill sent it to the House or Senate as a whole for consideration on November 30, 2017.

The House Majority Leader indicated on Apr 12, 2018 that this bill may be considered in the week ahead.
