Senate Votes to Extend Hospice Payment Sequestration Suspension

Posted Sunday, March 28, 2021

Last week, the Senate voted to extend the moratorium on Medicare payment sequestration for hospice through the end of the year.  The bill now goes to the house where it is expected to pass once the House returns from its recess.

“At a time when our country is relying so heavily on our health care providers to help get us back to normal, we cannot ignore the financial realities they face,” said Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), a sponsor of the bill. “I am pleased that the Senate passed this legislation [Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.)] and I authored that will extend the current sequester moratorium until the end of the year. This financial certainty is desperately needed in these uncertain times.”
