Medicare provider payment cuts would be extended through 2023, two years longer than the cuts set by the Budget Control Act of 2011. The American Hospital Association (AHA) released a statement on December 11, 2013, stating that the agreement “undermines hospitals’ ability to provide access to quality health care services.” To read the full AHA statement, click here.
