Tell your Representative to ask CMS not to finalize 20% reimbursement cuts to Medicare specialty providers.
Email Your Representative
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently put forward deep, across-the-board 20% payment cuts to specialty providers in the Proposed Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) Rule for CY2022.
These cuts are being driven primarily by a flawed methodology. If implemented in its current form, these painful cuts will drive office-based providers out of business and reduce Medicare beneficiary access. Furthermore, the proposed cuts will widen the health equity gap by impacting people of color the hardest and reducing patient choice.
Data shows that this misguided formula will undermine the quality of care for patients and exacerbate health system consolidation.
We are urging advocates within the specialty care community to contact your member of Congress and ask them to sign on to a bipartisan letter urging CMS not to finalize the clinical labor policy in the 2022 Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) proposed rule. The letter is being led by Rep. Bobby Rush (IL-1) and Rep. Gus Bilirakis (FL-12).
Write your Congressional representative today and ask them to add their name to the Rush-Bilirakis letter.
We urge you to customize your letter to include your personal experience.
