With just one month remaining in 2022, MGMA needs your immediate help urging Congress to take action to avert significant Medicare payment cuts set to take effect on Jan. 1. The time to act is now! Utilize our online portal to send a letter to your members of Congress today encouraging the passage of legislation to avert the 4.47% reduction to the Medicare conversion factor, waive the statutory 4% Pay-As-You-Go sequester, provide an inflationary update based on the Medicare Economic Index, and extend the alternative payment model 5% incentive payment.

Already sent a letter? Please share this link with everyone at your practice and ask them to do the same: Want to get the word out beyond your colleagues? Encourage others to get involved in this critical advocacy effort by sharing a post from our Medicare Cuts Advocacy Social Media Toolkit!

Without congressional action, these payment reductions will take effect and have a drastic impact on beneficiary access to care and group practice financial resiliency. Take a look at our survey results to see what others are saying about the payment cuts, including how they disrupt practice operations and overall investment throughout the healthcare industry. Join in #MGMAAdvocacy today calling for the swift passage of legislation to avert these devastating payment cuts!
