Prevent Medicare Physician Reimbursement Cuts
Unless Congress acts, psychiatrists are facing continued Medicare reimbursement cuts. 

While we achieved some legislative wins to increase payments for psychotherapy services in 2024 and mitigate recent overall Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) cuts on a temporary basis, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approved a 3.4% reduction in Medicare's physician payments for 2024. This cut is devastating to physician practices and the patients they care for, and could necessitate reduced staffing and office closures, disproportionately harming rural and underserved communities.  

Please urge Congress to prevent these devastating cuts from going into effect by cosponsoring the Preserving Seniors’ Access to Physicians Act of 2023 (H.R.6683). This bipartisan bill would completely eliminate the 3.4% physician pay cut expected to take effect on January 1.
