Since 2020, the 2% Medicare sequester moratorium has been in effect – and we are urging Congress to continue it through the end of the public health emergency (PHE). Without Congressional intervention, beginning April 1, there will be a 1% reduction in Medicare sequester payments for three months (April 1 – June 30, 2022) and then the Medicare sequester resumes.
We believe resuming the Medicare sequester will hinder our ability to provide quality care, especially if/when a new COVID-19 variant wave sweeps across the country.
The College’s Advocacy Council joined more than 50 other medical organizations in urging Congress to extend the current 2% Medicare sequester moratorium before April 1 when the sequestration schedule resumes.
