The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) has signed a letter expressing support for the efforts of Representatives Raul Ruiz (D-CA), Larry Bucshon (R-IN), Ami Bera (D-CA), and Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) for introducing H.R. 2474, the "Strengthening Medicare for Patients and Providers Act." The legislation applies a permanent inflation-based update to the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) conversion factor, which will provide much-needed stability to the Medicare payment system as our members contend with an increasingly challenging environment providing Medicare beneficiaries with access to timely and quality care.
SCAI applauds the leaders of this legislation for their dedication to moving toward ensuring comprehensive, transformative reforms to the Medicare payment system. SCAI looks forward to working with Congress to ensure the passage of H.R. 2474 and continuing conversations around further payment reform to ensure America's seniors continue to receive access to the high-quality care they deserve.
