Representatives Schneider (D-IL) and McKinley (R-WV) introduced the Medicare Sequester COVID Moratorium Act in the House of Representatives. The bill would continue the temporary suspension of Medicare sequestration payment reductions for hospices through the public health emergency, otherwise it is set to expire on December 31st.

“At a time when health care workers are on the front lines battling the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress should be doing everything within their power to ease their burden,” McKinley said. “America’s health care providers continue to be stretched thin and face serious financial challenges as a result of the economic and public health crisis. Suspending Medicare reimbursement cuts will allow hospitals and doctors to keep their doors open and continue providing critical care to their patients.”
