Tell your legislator to support H.R. 2474

American Venous Forum

In recent years, many physicians and non-partisan government stakeholders have expressed concerns about the failure of Medicare payments to keep up with inflation and the rising costs of running a medical practice, as well as the negative impact it could have on patient access to care.

On April 4, 2023, a bipartisan group of doctors came together in Congress to introduce H.R. 2474, the Strengthening Medicare for Patients and Providers Act.

This legislation addresses uncertainty affecting Medicare-participating physicians and will help avoid a possible physician shortage for Medicare patients. H.R. 2474 would change the physician payment rate by providing an annual Medicare physician payment update tied to inflation, as measured by the Medicare Economic Index (MEI).  

The legislation was introduced by Representatives Raul Ruiz, M.D. (D-CA-25), Larry Bucshon, M.D. (R-IN-08), Ami Bera, M.D. (D-CA-06), and Mariannette Miller-Meeks, M.D. (R-IA-01). Bill text for H.R. 2474 can be found here.
