CALL CONGRESS TUESDAY: STOP MEDICARE ZOMBIE FINANCING
We need your help to convince Congress to stop the “zombie Medicare financing” it uses to pay physicians. Please call Washington at 7 am tomorrow, and at 7 am every Tuesday thereafter, until Congress stops this year’s 27.5-percent payment cut and agrees to fix the defective Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula. Get commitments from Sens. John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison and your representative to fix the 12-year-old problem. For talking points and congressional phone numbers, go the Medicare Meltdown Action Center on the TMA website.
