House letter urging CMS to reconsider OPPS site-neutral cuts now collecting signatures

Reps. Peter Roskam (R-IL), chair of the Ways and Means Health Subcommittee, and Mike Thompson (D-CA), are asking their House colleagues to sign on to a “Dear Colleague” OPPS letter urging the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to reconsider proposals to cut payments for evaluation and management services and expand certain site-neutral payment policies to grandfathered off-campus hospital provider-based departments (PBDs).

It is critical that health care providers and facilities show support and help advocate to CMS to withdraw these proposals. The Roskam and Thompson offices are collecting signatures on the letter through Oct. 10.

Please contact, Rep. Kristi Noem today and urge her to co-sign the House letter.  More details on this issue and additional background and talking points are available in the AHA fact sheet.
