Medicare Cuts Coming April 1st Without Congressional Action! Contact Your Lawmakers TODAY!
2% Sequester Moratorium Ends March 31st! Contact Your Lawmakers TODAY!
On December 27, 2020, President Trump signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. This important legislation postponed the Medicare sequester moratorium for three months, until March 31, 2021. Without congressional action, these cuts will take place, beginning April 1st.
Also, the passage of the recent $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 will cause an additional 4% sequestration cut in 2022, to satisfy federal law requiring across-the-board cuts to programs (including Medicare), if legislation affecting mandatory spending or revenues increases net deficits.
As patients and health care providers across the nation continue to struggle financially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, now is not the time to implement even further cuts. Postponing these cuts will ensure that access to chiropractic services remains available to the nation’s more than 63 million Medicare beneficiaries, while allowing chiropractic practices to remain financially viable as we move forward through the pandemic.
Email your U.S. representative today and ask him or her to co-sponsor H.R. 1868, legislation that would postpone the 2% sequestration cut through December 31, 2021, as well as stop the 4% cuts associated with the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
