Matt Wolfe was quoted in Home Health Care News on a U.S. House bill to extend a temporary pause on Medicare payment cuts known as sequestration. Congress suspended sequestration to help providers during the coronavirus pandemic, but that suspension expires at the end of this month.
“The CARES Act’s temporary suspension of Medicare sequestration payment reductions has allowed home health providers to purchase PPE, train staff, and otherwise invest in keeping patients and staff safe during the pandemic,” Matt said. “If this bill does not become law and the sequestration is reinstated, it will be a devastating blow for home health providers at a terrible time.”
