EDPMA Letter to Congressional Committee Leaders on MPFS Cuts

On Monday, September 12, EDPMA sent a letter to congressional committee leaders requesting that Congress act before the end of the year to mitigate expected Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) cuts in calendar year 2023. EDPMA is asking Congress to address the short-term issue of stabilizing Medicare reimbursement in 2023 by increasing the Medicare CF in 2023 by at least 4.5 percent, waiving the 4 percent PAYGO cut, and providing an inflationary update based on the Medicare Economic Index (MEI). EDPMA is also urging Congress to work towards a long-term solution to provide an annual inflationary update to provide greater stability for physicians participating in the Medicare program and their patients.
