TMA'S "STOP THE MEDICARE MELTDOWN" PETITION DRIVE BRINGS PUBLIC AWARENESS TO SGR
Even if Congress enacts a three-year SGR fix this weekend, TMA and our 50 state medical society partners continue to push for signatures on our petition asking Congress for a permanent revision to the Medicare payment formula. As one prominent editorial stated last week, “Medicare is a lifeline for many Texas seniors. They have counted on it to be there for them in their time of need. But with physicians fleeing from the program, this security net is fraying badly. It must be fixed.” We have nearly 100,000 signatures on file already. If you haven’t yet, please sign the petition today. It takes about 10 seconds of your time. After you sign it, ask your friends, family, and neighbors to sign it until you get 10 signatures or more.
