Dear Dr. Chernew:

The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC, or the Commission) will vote this month on payment recommendations for 2023. On behalf of our nearly 5,000 member hospitals, health systems and other health care organizations; our clinician partners — including more than 270,000 affiliated physicians, 2 million nurses and other caregivers — as well the 43,000 health care leaders who belong to our professional membership groups, the American Hospital Association (AHA) asks that commissioners consider the following issues that would have significant impacts on hospitals, health systems, other providers and Medicare patients before making final recommendations.

View the detailed letter below.
