Advocacy in action

AOA takes action to prevent physician payment cuts

The AOA is focusing on the Strengthening Medicare for Patients and Providers Act.


The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released its 2024 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and Quality Payment Program Final Rule, which outlines the latest updates on physician payment policies. The AOA’s Public Policy team has published a summary of the new rule, which includes a proposed 3.37% reduction in Medicare physician payment rates.

The AOA is taking swift action to prevent the payment cuts, including deployment of a grassroots advocacy campaign urging Congress to establish more stable physician payment updates through the Strengthening Medicare for Patients and Providers Act (HR 2474). Take action today by writing your lawmakers in support of HR 2474. Learn more
