"STOP THE MEDICARE MELTDOWN" PETITION DRIVE HITS 100,000 SIGNATURES

As you’re reading this, members of Congress are returning from their Memorial Day recess, and TMA’s petition to “Stop the Medicare Meltdown” is collecting its 101,000th signature. The connection? Congress is back in Washington with a seven-day window to stop the 21-percent cut in physicians’ Medicare payments from taking effect. The cut kicked in June 1, but the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) ordered carriers to hold Medicare claims for 10 business days. Our online petition campaign, plus nearly 20,000 paper signatures, calls on Congress to stop the Medicare madness. Physicians and patients are suffering from the constant uncertainty. If you haven’t yet, please sign the petition today and check out and share our latest mashup video.
