Biden, Congress Extend Medicare Sequestration Holiday Through 2021

Posted Monday, April 19, 2021

Last Tuesday, the House of Representatives voted to extend the Medicare sequestration holiday through 2021.  The following day, President Biden signed the legislation.  CMS anticipated this to be passed, so it has not been enforcing the 2% cut.

“While the COVID-19 crisis has underscored the value of care delivery in the home, providers continue to struggle with the impacts of the 4.36% PDGM payment cut that took effect in 2020 and again in 2021,” Joanne Cunningham, executive director of Quality Home Healthcare said. “The sequestration moratorium provided by Congress has been incredibly valuable to the home health sector due to the challenges of providing care during the PHE, coupled with the PDGM payment cuts this year and last. This continued relief will help stabilize the delivery of home health to Medicare’s most vulnerable seniors.”
