COALITION OF STATE MEDICAL SOCIETIES: PASS SGR FIX, AND FUNDING, BY JAN. 1


The Coalition of State Medical Societies wrote congressional leaders, exhorting them to pass Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) payment reform by Jan. 1, 2015, and to find the funding needed to ensure its passage. “We cannot urge you strongly enough to engage now in the pursuit of a long-term funding solution,” the nine medical societies wrote. “We ask for you to remain open to an array of potential funding sources, some that you may have opposed in the past. But please remember, these vital funds will accomplish a historic change in America’s health care system.”
