H.R.8800 – Supporting Medicare Providers Act of 2022

Due to the ongoing recess leading to the midterm elections, very important legislation introduced in September, H.R. 8800 – Supporting Medicare Providers Act of 2022, has stalled.

This critical, bipartisan legislation would stabilize Medicare for physicians and patients because it:

  1. Stops the 4.42% of the Medicare cuts related to the budget neutrality adjustment in the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS), helping to buoy physician practices that are still recovering from the pandemic;
  2. Protects patients access to care, particularly in underserved communities; and
  3. Provides a commitment to long-term Medicare payment reform.
