"GRANDMA & THE BIG, BAD SGR" VIDEO GOING VIRAL
Medical societies from around the country are sharing the link to TMA’s new animated video that explains the Medicare financing conundrum in terms even a child can understand. Launched late last week to help garner public support for replacing the SGR formula, “Grandma & the Big, Bad SGR” already has nearly 1,400 views on YouTube. Please share the link with your colleagues, staff, patients, family, and friends via email or social media. “Doctors have no choice but to consider limiting the number of Medicare patients they see,” Dr. Malone said. “No doctor wants that to happen. Our Medicare patients and military families deserve better.” Brent Annear, TMA’s media relations manager, conceived and produced the video. The tremendous, sweet voice belongs to the daughter of TMA Assistant General Counsel Andrea Schwab.
