Take Action Today to Prevent Medicare Payment Cuts for RDNs

Registered dietitian nutritionists are facing a nearly 8.5% cut in their Medicare Part B Payments. Set to take effect on January 1, 2023, the payment reduction is a combination of two separate cuts: 

  1. A 4.42% cut created by a Medicare budget neutrality rule that requires Medicare to offset any increases it makes in the payment rates to any codes
  2. A 4% “PAYGO” cut triggered by spending in the American Rescue Act COVID-19 relief legislation

U.S. Reps. Bera (Calif.) and Bucshon (Ind.) are leading an effort to stabilize Medicare payments and enact long-term changes to Medicare rules that prevent any more large, arbitrary cuts from happening in the future. Introduced by both representatives, the Academy is championing the Supporting Medicare Providers Act of 2022 (H.R. 8800) to address the 4.42% cut. 

 Take action today and urge your Representative to cosponsor H.R. 8800 to stop cuts to Medicare payment rates.
