President Biden signed S. 610 Protecting Medicare and American Farmers from Sequester Cuts Act on Friday, December 10. This legislation, among other things, prevents the looming fiscal cliff in Medicare reimbursement for physicians. The signed bill, which received bipartisan support in Congress, makes the following adjustments to Medicare reimbursement:
Provides a three-month delay of the Medicare sequestration reductions and a three-month, one-percent reduction in Medicare sequestration payment reduction
Provides a one-year increase in the Medicare physician fee schedule of 3 percent to support physicians and other health professionals in adjusting to changes in the Medicare physician fee schedule during 2022
Prevents Statutory PAYGO sequestration through 2022, preventing automatic across-the-board cuts to Medicare, farm programs, social services, student loans, and resources for students and individuals with disabilities, among other programs
APMA thanks members for using APMA’s eAdvocacy website to contact their members of Congress to prevent drastic cuts in Medicare reimbursement. While APMA appreciates Congress and the administration for taking action, APMA will continue to advocate for a full repeal of Medicare sequestration.
