“STOP THE MEDICARE MELTDOWN” PETITION TAKES OFF WITH NATIONWIDE PARTNERS
With 50 state medical associations and 14 national specialty societies promoting it, TMA’s online petition asking Congress for a permanent fix to Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula has gathered more than 22,500 signatures. TMA and county medical society leaders won some great media coverage with seven simultaneous news conferences launching the petition drive. Please add your name to the petition and encourage your friends, family, colleagues, staff, and patients to sign it as well.
