Many health systems and other providers around the country are approaching the repayment period for the Accelerated and Advance Payment Program. In light of the continued pandemic, reduced Medicare payments could be devastating to front-line providers’ continued efforts to innovate treatment for COVID-19 patients, curb the spread of the virus and ramp up routine care. Premier sent a letter to House and Senate leaders urging a delay of the repayment period and other urgently needed improvements to the program.
