The temporary Medicare ambulance increases of 2% urban, 3% rural and the super rural bonus are scheduled to expire at the end of this year. Once again, the Congress is waiting until the last minute to address Medicare provider extenders including the temporary Medicare add-on payments.

The good news is the Senate and House are negotiating the details of a Medicare provider extender package and both their respective positions would extend the increases for five years! The positions differ on how CMS would collect cost data from ambulance service suppliers and providers. And we are still trying to focus the offset for the 5-year extension on a cut to those entities which abuse the dialysis transport benefit. We should have a very good idea come December 19 on where efforts stand on the 5-year extension, data collection and the offset.

AAA Government Affairs Chair Jamie Pafford-Gresham, Vice-Chair Shawn Baird and Senior Vice President Tristan North, along with the rest of the AAA lobbying team, have been directly involved in these efforts and will present on the webinar. This is a webinar you do not want to miss!
