Congress Delays Harmful Medicare Cuts

December 9, 2021

Lawmakers passed the Protecting Medicare and American Farmers from Sequester Cuts Act (S. 610), helping to protect beneficiary access to essential healthcare services by temporarily reducing or delaying Medicare payment cuts scheduled for 2022. AHCA/NCAL thanked members of Congress:

This interim relief is appreciated, and we are eager to work with Members of both houses to enact permanent solutions in the new year.
