AMA Correspondence on Medicare Sequester

Posted on

The included letter was sent to leadership in the House and Senate regarding the upcoming expiration of the 2% Medicare sequester and the potential for an additional 4% sequester effective next January as a result of PAYGO rules that will go into effect following passage of the economic stimulus package currently under debate. Clearly, these Medicare payment cuts would be unsustainable for physician practices and ACRO will be advocating against such reductions.
