Senate Passed Bill to Reverse the 21% MEDICARE/TRICARE Payment Cut

UPDATE: Senate Passed Bill to Reverse the 21% MEDICARE/TRICARE Payment Cut

Senate Passed Bill to Reverse the 21% MEDICARE/TRICARE Payment Cut Take Action!

Now the House must act on this legislation.

Current law required a 21% cut in MEDICARE and TRICARE payments to doctors as of June 1.

While the House approved H.R. 4213 to prevent any payment cuts through the end of 2011, last week, the Senate could not muster the votes to pass this legislation, leaving MEDICARE little choice but to implement the 21% cut. Late Friday, June 18, the Senate unanimously passed legislation that rescinds the 21% cut, provides a 2.2% increase, and extends the moratorium until this November 30. However the House had adjourned for the weekend and should act on this legislation in the coming week

MEDICARE officials already have held up processing payment claims for doctors' care delivered since June 1, the date the 21% cut was supposed to have been implemented. As long as they statutorily could, Medicare officials held off implementing the cuts until June 15 and have begun processing reimbursements with the 21% cut.
