CMS Announces Claims Hold

In anticipation of possible congressional action to suspend the two percent budget sequestration cut slated to take effect April 1, 2021, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has 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.  Further information from CMS will be posted here as it becomes available. Congress is expected to act on this issue in mid-April.
