Last night, April 13, 2021, the US House of Representatives passed the bill extending the moratorium on the 2% sequestration through 12/31/2021. Once the bill is signed into law, CMS will instruct the MACs to release payments for claims with April dates of service that have been on hold pending this legislation.
The 4% PayGo sequester was not included in the final legislation, and it remains in place to take effect on 01/01/2022. We anticipate that most medical professional organizations and specialty societies will set their sights on this next.
