• After sinking during the early part of the year, it is encouraging to note that Medicare FFS payments had “nearly returned to 2019 levels” by the week ending July 1. On the prevention side, mammography returned to pre-Covid levels and colonoscopies were at 85% of pre-Covid levels. (More under “Research”)
