Urge your Senators to help prevent Medicare Reimbursement Cuts!
Unless Congress acts, psychiatrists are facing significant Medicare reimbursement cuts before the end of the year. 

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has proposed a 4.42 percent cut for all physician services in 2023. In addition, Congressional Pay-As-You-Go (PAYGO) rules have been triggered, requiring a separate 4 percent cut to physician reimbursement.

These payment cuts, exceeding 8 percent in the aggregate, stand to further jeopardize the financial viability of many practices and the ability of beneficiaries to access care. Physician reimbursement is the only payment within Medicare without an annual inflationary update, additional cuts could necessitate reduced staffing and office closures, disproportionately harming our nation’s most vulnerable patients in rural and underserved communities.

Clinicians across the country are facing significant financial hardship due to higher practice costs and the impacts of COVID-19, now is not the time to place further strain on our health care system.Urge Congress to prevent these devastating cuts from going into effect.
