Urgent Action – Contact Your Senators

Last Friday Senators John Boozman (R-AR) and Peter Welch (D-VT) along with 30 bipartisan cosigners sent a letter to Senate leaders calling for a legislative solution to protect access to Medicare services by canceling the 3.37% cut to physician Medicare payments that went into effect on January 1.

If your Senators signed the letter (click link for full list), we encourage you and your membership to reach out to their offices on social media, email or phone via the Senate switchboard to thank them for their support and to remind them that the job is not done.

Time is of the essence—in the coming days Congress is expected to take up the 2024 appropriation funding bills, and we must ensure that full relief from the devastating 3.37% cut is included in this package. Behind the scenes negotiations are ongoing and it’s imperative that your Senators are engaged in fixing the problem.

If your Senators did not sign the letter, it’s still important that you contact them and let them know how damaging these cuts are to physicians and their patients in your state.

The time is now to cancel the cut!
