Significant Pay Cuts Averted for 2022

    12/29/2021
In response to a large, concerted effort on the part of many physician groups, including AANEM, Congress took action at the very end of 2021 to avoid an impending nearly 10% cut to Medicare payments that would have gone into effect January 1, 2022.

On December 21, 2021, Congress passed the Protecting Medicare and American Farmers from Sequester Cuts Act which avoided a 4% statutory cut from the PAYGO (Pay-As-You-Go Act of 2010) provisions, extended the moratorium on the 2% Medicare payment sequester, and mitigated the significant 3.75% reduction in the Medicare conversion factor.

AANEM State Liaisons – Virtual Visits to Capitol Hill

    12/29/2021
AANEM returned to Washington, D.C. virtually for its 8th Annual Day on Capitol Hill in November. AANEM State Liaisons met with key legislative offices throughout the month of November to educate Senators and Representatives about electrodiagnostic (EDX) medicine and the current challenges facing the patient and professional community. 

The Liaisons’ primary “ask” of the offices was for support of AANEM’s continued efforts to advance quality standards for EDX medicine to both improve patient care and stop fraud and abuse in this area. Nearly every office was very supportive of this cause and seem poised to take actionable steps in support of the effort in the new year.
