H.R. 8702 Would Prevent Medicare Cuts

H.R. 8702, the Holding Providers Harmless from Medicare Cuts During COVID-19 Act of 2020, was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives October 30.
This comprehensive bill would ensure that payments to chiropractors would remain at current 2020 levels through 2022, eliminating the drastic potential cuts to the profession found in the 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule.
Please contact your U.S. Representative and ask him or her to support H.R. 8702. To find your representative, click here.
