Senator Collins Urges Senate Leaders to Take Action to Prevent Medicare Cuts

On Oct. 9, Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) sent a letter to Senate leaders expressing her “concern with the ill-timed payment cuts proposed for certain physician specialties.” In her letter, she observes that “physicians and other health care professionals are now facing harmful payment cuts at the very time they are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and trying to recover from the significant financial challenges brought on by this virus.” She notes that in light of the ongoing public health and economic crisis, Congress should waive Medicare’s budget neutrality requirements before the final E/M code proposal is implemented on Jan. 1, 2021. The AANS and the CNS expressed appreciation for Sen. Collins’ efforts to prevent steep and harmful Medicare cuts.
