Attn: PPS Members whose are represented by Republicans in Congress:

In addition to asking for Congress to mitigate the 9% cut, PPS has been advocating for Congress to delay the reinstatement of the 2% Medicare sequestration cut until the end of the Public Health Emergency.  We have been hearing that the Medicare sequester moratorium extension is in danger of not being included due to concerns from Republican leadership.

Therefore, we urge you to do the following:
1) Email your legislators, and ask them to reach out to Leader McConnell or Leader McCarthy

Template message:
Please encourage Majority Leader McConnell/Leader McCarthy to delay the reinstatement of the 2% Medicare sequestration cut until the end of the Public Health Emergency.  Doing so will help my community-based outpatient physical therapy clinic--which is barely hanging on through the joint impact of the public health emergency and economic crisis--to continue to serve my patients and keep my clinic open.

2) Use your social media presence to urge the House and Senate leadership to include the moratorium in the end-of-year legislative package. Sample tweet: ".@SpeakerPelosi, @GOPleader, @senatemajldr, & @SenSchumer continue supporting patient access and their physical therapists through the end of the #COVID19 public health emergency.  Extend the Medicare Sequester Moratorium!"

Your engagement can make a real difference!  Thank you!
