It's now up to Congress: CMS has finalized cuts, making it more important than ever to urge lawmakers to support H.R. 8702. The cuts proposed by CMS in 2019 will take effect Jan. 1, 2021, but a bill in Congress could offset the damage. Contact your legislators to advocate for adoption of the Holding Providers Harmless From Medicare Cuts During COVID-19 Act of 2020, and join us for a virtual #FightTheCut rally on Dec. 3. Every voice matters — and time is running out.
