Premier Calls on Congress to Prevent Sequester and PAYGO Medicare Cuts
Premier joined 48 other healthcare organizations in urging House leaders to pass legislation to extend the 2 percent Medicare sequester moratorium and prevent the projected 4 percent Medicare spending cut scheduled to begin next year due to Pay-As-You-Go (PAYGO) statute reductions. The letter underscores the urgency in Congress taking this action to ensure that our nation’s healthcare providers and systems can continue to provide quality care to patients and not be subjected to billions of dollars in cuts during the ongoing pandemic.
