Former Washington Committee Chair Featured In Article about Medicare Cuts

On Jan. 6, Becker’s ACS published an article titled “CMS in the last year: 5 leaders weigh in.” The article featured John K. Ratliff, MD, FAANS, past chair of the AANS/CNS Washington Committee, who stated, “Once again, we are facing another year of devastating cuts to a Medicare system that is already ill-equipped to meet the needs of millions of Americans.” Dr. Ratliff went on to “urge Congress to not only stabilize payment levels in the short term but also transform the system into one that is stable and reliable in the long term.”
