ATTENTION RDNs: TAKE ACTION TO STOP CUTS TO RDN MEDICARE PAYMENTS

A two percent sequester on Medicare payments has been temporarily suspended since the start of the COVID-19 public health emergency, but this freeze is set to expire on March 31, 2021. If Congress does not act, Medicare Part B payments to RDNs and other Medicare providers will see an across-the-board 2% cut beginning April 1, 2021.

The Medicare Sequester COVID Moratorium Act (H.R. 315) would extend sequestration relief for the duration of the COVID-19 public health emergency, restoring financial certainty to the nation’s health care providers and eliminating the need for Congress to pass additional short extensions.

Please urge your Representatives to co-sponsor the Medicare Sequester COVID Moratorium Act and support its swift passage before cuts take effect on April 1, 2021.

Take Action Today! https://www.eatrightpro.org/account/login?&returnUrl=%2faction-center%3fvvsrc%3d%252fcampaigns%252f82119%252frespond&at=be5594a4207008bc7ed61eb796006fb574f116f4097eb684519092cb27f10947
