Tell Congress to protect America's Medicare patients

Tell Congress to protect America's Medicare patients

On January 1, 2023, physicians are scheduled to face devastating Medicare payment cuts by MS. The planned cuts could amount to an 8.42% reduction in physician reimbursement, which would severely impede patient access to care due in part to the forced closure of practices. Physicians simply cannot afford to operate under the current payment system. Congress must reform the Medicare payment system to make it simpler, more reflective of real-world practice costs and more predictable for both physicians and CMS. It is urgent that Congress continue to work with the physician community to develop long-term solutions to the problems with the Medicare physician payment system and: • Prevent the scheduled 4.42 % payment reduction from going into effect on January 1, 2023. • Provide financial stability through a baseline positive annual update based on the Medicare Economic Index reflecting inflation in practice costs. • Waive the statutory PAYGO requirements. Please support North Carolina's physicians and patients by passing legislation that would fix the flawed Medicare physician payment system before these cuts go into effect. Thank you.
