Tell Congress What You Think About the Medicare Meltdown
Tired of constantly being the yo-yo on the congressional Medicare string? Here are two ways to tell Washington what you think of the latest on-again, off-again 21-percent cut in Medicare payments. 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. 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. Also, the American Medical Association is encouraging physicians to contact Congress to explain how its mismanagement of the Medicare program is wreaking havoc on your practices. Use AMA’s grassroots hotline, (800) 833-6354, or send an e-mail.
