The Senate passed a bill on December 9th delaying statutory cuts to the Medicare program, this follows the House passing the bill 2 days earlier.

The bill will extend Medicare sequestration, which is a 2% cut for home health agencies and other Medicare-reimbursed providers. When President Joe Biden signs off on the legislation, the sequestration will be delayed until April 1, 2022.

At that point, the normal 2% level will drop to 1% for another three months.
