    Dear Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Schumer, Minority Leader McConnell, and Minority Leader McCarthy:

    We, the undersigned organizations, are writing to express our appreciation for the bipartisan enactment of The Protecting Medicare and American Farmers from Sequester Cuts Act in December 2021, which extends the suspension of Medicare sequestration cuts, pursuant to The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Suppressing sequestration has provided critical relief in our ongoing battle against COVID-19 and its variants, including Omicron, and enabled health care providers across the country to continue serving their patients and communities. We respectfully request, therefore, that Congress revisit the extensionโ€™s prescribed structure under which sequestration payment reductions will soon resume, and instead extend the full 2% Medicare sequester moratorium for the duration of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE).
