As we continue our many efforts to address the cuts proposed in the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, we need your help! Most recently, the ACC, ASNC, CAA, SNMMI and ACNM have secured a Congressional sign-on letter to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) by Reps. Mike Kelly, (R-PA), Ron Estes (R-KS), and Ron Kind, (D-WI). As members, we urge you to write, call, or email your representatives and senators and ask them to sign the letter and voice concerns with CMS directly.
