ACR Applauds Bipartisan Effort to Mitigate Medicare Cuts; Urges Swift Passage

The American College of Radiology applauds the introduction of the “Protecting Medicare and American Farmers from Sequester Cuts Act,” a bipartisan legislative package to mitigate a significant portion of the Medicare-related payment cuts slated for implementation on Jan. 1, 2022.  The Medicare provisions in the legislative agreement will help to stabilize the health care system while policymakers consider solutions to the ongoing structural problems with Medicare’s broken payment system. The ACR urges lawmakers in the House and Senate to quickly pass this critical bill or ensure that the language is included in any larger legislation passed by Congress prior to the end of this session.
