AAHomecare pushes sequestration, budget neutrality

Thursday, November 19, 2020

WASHINGTON ­– AAHomecare is asking members to use its Action Center to register support for extending a moratorium on Medicare sequestration cuts, which is set to expire Dec. 31. AAHomecare is also urging them to register support for H.R. 8158, a bill introduced by Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., and Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa that would remove the budget neutrality requirement for oxygen in rural areas. In September, the House Energy & Commerce Committee approved H.R. 8158. The association would like to see both measures advance before Congress adjourns in December.
