TEMPORARY CLAIMS HOLD PENDING CONGRESSIONAL ACTION TO EXTEND 2% SEQUESTER REDUCTION SUSPENSION
Temporary Claims Hold Pending Congressional Action to Extend 2% Sequester Reduction Suspension
*** SPECIAL EDITION / Mar 30, 2021 ***
In anticipation of possible Congressional action to extend the 2% sequester reduction suspension, we instructed the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) to hold all claims with dates of service on or after April 1, 2021, for a short period without affecting providers’ cash flow. This will minimize the volume of claims the MACs must reprocess if Congress extends the suspension; the MACs will automatically reprocess any claims paid with the reduction applied if necessary.
