Senate Passes Bill to Extend Medicare Sequester Fix Through 2021
The Senate overwhelmingly passed legislation Thursday to extend a pause on Medicare payment cuts through 2021, a major demand from providers still struggling financially during the pandemic.
The legislation passed the Senate by a 90-2 margin and now heads to the House for final passage. The House passed a similar bill earlier this month that extended the moratorium on the cuts, which were installed under the sequester, for nine months.
However, the House is unlikely to take up the legislation until next month as the chamber is in recess until the middle of April.
