Contact your senators TODAY and ask them to cosign the letter to Senate leadership, urging them to address the proposed deep Medicare cuts that are currently set to take effect on January 1, 2021.
The deadline for cosigning the letter is tomorrow, December 2, 2020. Your senators should contact either Senator Daines’ or Senator Stabenow’s office and ask to have their name added to the list of senators cosigning the letter.
CMS has proposed a 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule that is expected to result in the following cuts to reimbursement:
- Emergency Medicine -6%
- Radiology -11%
- Anesthesiology -8%
Furthermore, Medicare sequestration, which is also scheduled to return on January 1, would cut Medicare reimbursement by another 2%.
- Emergency Medicine -8%
- Radiology -13%
- Anesthesiology -10%
This is just the first of many calls to action we anticipate before the New Year. Please take action and share as we continue to fight for fair compensation.
