Re: Medicare physician payment update

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

On behalf of our member medical group practices, the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) deeply appreciates actions taken by Congress to support healthcare providers in their response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, financial relief measures have been pivotal to group practices keeping their doors open to treat patients and remaining financially solvent. To help maintain economic progress and recovery, we request you take action to address planned Medicare physician payment cuts that would disproportionately and negatively impact certain physician specialties starting Jan. 1, 2021. Specifically, we urge Congress to waive budget neutrality requirements codified in Section 1848(c)(2) of the Social Security Act for the 2021 calendar year.
