ACR, Others Back Bill to Delay Medicare Cuts During Pandemic

The ACR and 73 other medical groups support the prevention of planned Medicare reimbursement cuts for radiologists and other specialties by offering temporary additional payments to health providers for two years, and urged Congress to approve the bill. “Any Medicare payment cuts can only worsen the financial instability of healthcare provider practices already reeling from the pandemic and limit patient access to potentially lifesaving care,” ACR Board of Chancellors Chair Dr. Howard Fleishon said in a statement.
