Senate Passes Legislation to Stop Medicare Cuts
Following on the heels of a House vote earlier this week, the Senate passed legislation tonight that would provide a short-term fix to the substantial Medicare cuts facing clinicians as of Jan. 1. The legislation now goes to President Biden for his signature. Stopping these cuts has been the top priority for ACC Advocacy this year and was the #1 talking point at the 2021 Legislative Conference. While the legislation does not completely eliminate the cuts, it will provide relief from steep reductions and time to work with our partner societies and members of Congress to find a long-term solution.

The ACC Advocacy Team has worked closely with other health care societies and with members of the House and Senate, as well as key committee and leadership-level staff to get this across the finish line. In addition, the leadership by so many of you, and your respective Chapters, Sections and Committees, as well as the grassroots efforts by thousands of ACC members urging congressional action to stop the cuts have – and continue to be – instrumental in moving this forward. While more work is still needed, this is a major Advocacy success story as we head into the New Year.
