Neurosurgery Urges Congress to Adopt its Plan for Preventing Medicare Cuts
On Dec. 4, the AANS and the CNS joined 18 other surgical organizations in sending a letter to Congressional leadership urging immediate intervention to stop devastating Medicare physician payment cuts scheduled to be implemented on Jan. 1, 2021.
The groups called on Congress to incorporate the provisions of the “Holding Providers Harmless from Medicare Cuts During COVID-19 Act” (H.R. 8702/S. 5007) and S. 4932, the “Medicare Reimbursement Equity Act,” into any year-end legislative package. Additionally, the letter urges Congress to halt the implementation of the G2211 add-on code for certain complex E/M services.
