COVID Relief Bill Mitigates Scheduled Cuts to Surgical Payment

December 22, 2020

On December 21, 2020, Congress enacted a 5,500-page consolidated appropriations act, which included COVID relief provisions. Through 2020, The American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS) has worked to avert the Fee Schedule cuts to surgical payments that were set to take effect on January 1, 2021. The Society joined 11 other surgical professional associations in forming the Surgical Care Coalition to advocate for preventing Medicare payment cuts that threaten patients' timely access to surgical care. As explained in this article, we believe that the combination of various provisions in the relief legislation passed yesterday accomplishes that goal.
