The Senate on Thursday voted 59-35 to pass a bill delaying statutory cuts to the Medicare program. The House passed its own version of the legislation on Dec. 7.

Specifically, the bill extends a “holiday” around Medicare sequestration, which translates to a 2% cut for home health agencies and other Medicare-reimbursed providers. Once President Joe Biden signs off on the legislation, which he is expected to do, sequestration will be delayed until April 1, 2022.
