ASCO Joins AMA Letter to Extend Medicare Sequester Relief
ASCO joined the American Medical Association (AMA) and many national specialty and state medical societies in sending a sign-on letter to congressional leadership advocating that Congress pass legislation to extend the current moratorium on the two percent Medicare payment sequester beyond the March 31 expiration date. The relief from the sequestration cuts enacted by Congress has proven to be critical for many practices to keep their doors open. The letter strongly urges Congress to pass H.R. 315, the “Medicare Sequester COVID Moratorium Act”—bipartisan legislation that would continue the current Medicare sequester moratorium for the duration of the public health emergency.
