WINTER CONFERENCE HEADLINER OPINES ON SGR

Harold Miller, who will deliver the Dawn Duster at 2015 TMA Winter Conference on Jan. 31, offers some insightful suggestions for Congress on how to pay for the repeal of Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula in a new white paper. “The way to pay for repealing the SGR isn’t to cut physician payments in another way, cut payments to other providers, refuse to pay for services Medicare beneficiaries need, or make cuts in other programs,” he writes. “The solution is to change the way Medicare pays for health care so that physicians can change the way they deliver care, thereby enabling patients to get better care with less total spending.”
