Congress Must Stop Pending Medicare Cuts

Medicare payment cuts are currently scheduled for 2022 unless Congress takes action before year-end. It was expected that these cuts would have been addressed as part of last week’s budget bill but unfortunately that did not happen.

Complex Rehab Technology providers and other healthcare professionals remain committed to continuing to meet the extraordinary challenges in providing effective care during the ongoing COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE). However, should these cuts be allowed, it will severely impact providers’ ability to supply the specialized technology and supporting services that people with disabilities and chronic medical conditions depend on. These cuts will also have other negative impacts. For more details, click here.

Now is not the time for any Medicare cuts. Relief is needed to maintain critical access for people with disabilities and other individuals impacted by the COVID-19 PHE. We are asking CRT advocates to email their Members of Congress today by clicking the button below and asking them to protect access in year-end legislation.
