Biden Signs H.R. 1868, Passing Continued Medicare Sequestration Relief and Technical Correction to Rural Health Clinic Program 

The House of Representatives passed H.R. 1868, a bill continuing Medicare sequestration relief through the end of the year and providing technical corrections to the December changes to the provider-based RHC program. The corrections change the enactment date of provider-based RHCs subject to the cap from December 31, 2019, to December 31, 2020, as well as made those clinics which had submitted an 855A application by December 31, 2020, to be eligible for the grandfathered rates. President Biden signed H.R. 1868 into law on Wednesday. NRHA applauds Congress for their work to continue relief from Medicare sequestration as well as provide a needed technical correction to the RHC provisions signed into law in December.
