The relief originally extended through the end of the year. In last year's end-of-year appropriations package, Congress extended the relief through the end of March 2020. Toward the end of March last year, the Senate passed legislation that would extend the relief through the end of 2020. Earlier this month, the House cleared the Senate's bill extending sequestration relief through the end of 2021 and the President quickly signed the bill.
It is expected that CMS will? resume processing Medicare claims, at amounts reflecting the Congressionally-mandated relief, very soon. For providers and Medicare Advantage and Part D plans, the two percent sequestration relief remains in effect through the end of 2021.
