U.S. House Passes Legislation to Prevent 2% Medicare Cut Until 2022 / Bill Signed by the President
Earlier this week the US House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved legislation, H.R. 1868, to extend until the end of the year the 2% — or $18 billion– Medicare sequester moratorium that had expired on April 1. This bill to prevent ill-timed Medicare cuts to physicians and other care providers had previously passed the U.S. Senate by a vote of 90-2 in late March. President Biden signed it into law last evening.
