Senate passes HANYS-supported bill to avert Medicare sequestration cuts

The U.S. Senate this week passed legislation to further delay 2% Medicare sequestration cuts set to take effect April 1 — a top HANYS and AHA priority. The bill would delay sequestration cuts for nine months bringing the total amount of sequestration cuts averted by New York’s hospitals and health systems in 2020 and 2021 to over $430 million. The bill is now headed to the House of Representatives, where the chamber is expected to vote on the package when they return from recess the week of April 12. Contact: Elyse Oveson
