ASA® Applauds Introduction of Medicare Access to Rural Anesthesiology Act in House

The American Society of Anesthesiologists® (ASA) applauds Friday’s introduction of the bipartisan Medicare Access to Rural Anesthesiology Act by Rep. Lynn Jenkins (KS-05) and Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (MO-01).  Many rural areas of the country face challenges in recruiting and retaining physicians to serve rural patients.  This legislation, which is the companion to S. 1444 by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA), reforms  Medicare’s rural incentive payment for all types of anesthesia providers and extends rural hospitals’ access to physician anesthesiologists.  Under this legislation, rural hospitals would expand access to physician anesthesiologist services and be able to more readily recruit and retain physician anesthesiologists who may want to serve their rural communities, providing greater access to physician care.
