Ask Congress to Stop Medicare Funding Cuts

Medicare faces looming cuts that can impact patient access to Medicare services. Please contact your member of Congress and ask them to:

  • Eliminate the scheduled -4.42 percent conversion factor cut in the 2023 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule;
  • Waive the 4 percent PAYGO cut;
  • Provide relief from the Medicare sequester; and
  • Eliminate the statutory annual payment freeze and provide an update to the MPFS in 2023 that reflects the high rate of inflation.

These reimbursement decreases come at one of the most financially uncertain times within the Medicare payment history. These steep cuts could have serious financial consequences for physicians who are already under financial distress due to the sustained COVID-19 pandemic.

Please take a minute to quickly email your Member of Congress and urge them to prevent these devastating cuts to echocardiography!
