WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Neal Dunn, M.D. (Florida-02) released the following statement ahead of the fiscal deadline for 2022.
"Patients in my district could lose their doctors unless Congress takes immediate action. Beginning January 1st, 2022, medical providers will endure a 10% cut in their Medicare reimbursement payments. This is bad news for my constituents and the rest of America, especially our seniors.
If you have Medicare today, will you have a doctor tomorrow? Many providers may be forced to close their doors or stop accepting Medicare entirely, thus limiting access to care when patients need it most. That’s my focus heading into 2022. I will vote NO on any legislation that extends government funding beyond December 31st without protecting my constituents’ relationships with their doctors.”
