Medicare Payment Delay Announcement


The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced that they will hold payments until mid-April in anticipation of the House passing the moratorium on the 2% sequestration when the Representatives return from break.  With this in mind, since the sequestration was supposed to take effect again as of April 1, 2021, CMS is holding payment of all claims with dates of service on or after April 1, 2021 until the House has a chance to vote on the legislation.

HMA will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they are released.
