    For Media Inquiries

    On Dec. 7, Reps. Greg Murphy, MD (R-N.C.), Danny Davis (D-Ill.), Brad Wenstrup, DPM (R-Ohio), Jimmy Panetta (D-Calif.), Larry Bucshon, MD (R-Ind.), and Michael Burgess, MD (R-Texas) introduced the Preserving Seniors’ Access to Physicians Act of 2023. The legislation would completely eliminate the 3.37% Medicare Physician Fee Schedule cut slated to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2024. The AAMC supports efforts to avert the cuts [refer to Washington Highlights, Dec. 1]. Both the Senate Finance Committee and House Energy and Commerce Committees have passed partial mitigation of the pending cuts, but no floor action is scheduled in either chamber before the end of the year [refer to Washington Highlights, Nov. 9].
