Remind Congress that patients will be impacted by Medicare payment cuts

Preventing cuts to Medicare physician payment continues to be a top ACS advocacy priority as significant cuts (nearly 9%) to physician payment for most surgical services delivered to Medicare patients are slated to take effect January 1, 2022.

As evidenced by record-breaking 2020 efforts, grassroots advocacy works and remains essential to stopping the cuts. Therefore, it is imperative to amplify surgery’s voice once again in Washington by urging House and Senate leadership to stop the cuts.

ACS chapter involvement over the next month is critical. Participate today by calling and writing your lawmakers and letting them know how the cuts will impact you and your patients. For questions or assistance, contact DAHP staff at ahp@facs.org.

Surgery is a specialized service that requires extensive training and expertise and should be viewed by Congress as an essential element to health care delivery across the country. Congress' support of surgery must be demonstrated by prioritizing a year-end fix to stop the cuts.

Please utilize tools provided by the ACS DAHP to take action early and often to elevate this important advocacy priority while protecting patients in the process.
