Sequestration Medicare Physician Pay Cut Extends to 2024
A new law signed by President Obama last week extends cuts to Medicare physician pay through 2024. The law extends the 2 percent cut on physician pay caused by sequestration, across-the-board cuts in federal spending, through 2024. This is the second time in two months that lawmakers have enacted legislation that is funded by extending the cut to physician pay.
