Dear Chairmen and Ranking Members:

The undersigned organizations applaud the swift action by Congress on passage of an emergency supplemental spending bill to address the most urgent COVID-19 response needs. While physician practices are doing their best to continue to provide as close as possible to business as usual, physician practices are already feeling the strain of staffing shortages and adjustments to workflow. Physicians are working to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and appreciate the support and regulatory flexibility they have received from Congress and the Administration thus far, including relaxation of  elemedicine guidelines, to provide patient care under the safest of possible environments. As you consider other steps to reduce regulatory burden and costs on physician practices, we respectfully request that you suspend further implementation of the Medicare Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) Program for advanced diagnostic imaging.
