Act Now to Prevent Medicare Payment Cuts

Act Now to Prevent Medicare Payment Cuts

Urge Congress to pass H.R. 1868 before April 1. 

Congress must act now to prevent cuts to Medicare due to congressionally mandated cuts to programs.

We extend our sincere appreciation to Congress for its support of aging services providers since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. While we are encouraged by the recent downward trend of COVID-19 infections and deaths, along with significant progress in vaccinations, we recognize that the months ahead will continue to present obstacles and challenges for both aging services providers and the older adults they serve. 

In order to ensure that our nation’s aging services can continue to provide quality care to patients and not be subjected to billions of dollars in cuts during this ongoing pandemic, we ask that Congress take action before April 1, 2021, to:

1) Extend the 2% Medicare sequester moratorium.

2) Prevent the projected 4% Medicare spending cut (approx. $36 billion) scheduled to begin next year due to Pay-As-You-Go (PAYGO) statute reductions.

We need the House to pass H.R. 1868 as soon as possible and send it to the Senate.
