Hundreds of hospital and health system leaders today participated in an AHA advocacy briefing to hear the latest on House and Senate bills that would extend the moratorium on the 2% Medicare sequester cuts, which are expected to resume on April 1 without additional congressional action.

Hospital and health system leaders urged their representatives and senators to support bills that would prevent the 2% cuts from going into effect during the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.
