Now is the perfect time to enlist our congressional delegation in the Texas Medicare Manifesto. Our U.S. senators and representatives will be home for the next week during Congress’ Presidents’ Day recess. We urge you to make an appointment to visit them or call and deliver a strong message. Congress must enact a rational Medicare physician payment system that automatically keeps up with the cost of running a practice and is backed by a stable funding source. The temporary reprieve from the 10-percent payment cut expires June 30. For talking points and an easy way to contact our senators and representatives, see the TMA Grassroots Action Center.
