2% Medicare Sequester Moratorium Deadline
On April 13th, 2021, Legislation was passed by Congress that extended the current 2% Medicare sequester moratorium established by the CARES Act through December 31, 2021. The previous expiration date was March 31, 2021. CMS had previously instructed all MACs to hold all claims with dates of service beginning April 1st for a short period of time as not to interfere with cash flow, in anticipation of possible Congressional action to extend the 2% sequester reduction suspension. Once the new legislation is signed into law, MACs should be able to begin processing those claims.
