SCAI, joined by over 100 groups, urged the new 118th Congress to hold hearings and work with all stakeholders to explore long-term payment solutions related to the Medicare program. The letter informed Congress that Medicare payments to clinicians have declined by 22% from 2001–2021. It also states that “the absence of an annual inflationary update, combined with statutory budget neutrality requirements, further compounds the difficulties our members face in managing resources to continue caring for patients in their communities.” SCAI continues to fight for Medicare reform and against Medicare cuts.
