AMA LOOKING FOR NEXT CHANCE TO REPEAL SGR

TMA Vice President for Advocacy Darren Whitehurst is in Washington today for the American Medical Association’s SGR/Physician Payment Reform Legislative Strategy Task Force. The group of senior medical society staff from around the country is exploring strategy and tactics for our next chance to seek permanent repeal of Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) payment formula, including new ways to approach Congress, engage patients, and energize physician grassroots. Without action from Congress, the SGR will mandate a 32-percent cut in physicians’ Medicare payments next year. We’ll keep you posted on what comes out of the meeting and on next steps
