Texans Trek to Capitol Hill to Lobby for SGR Repeal, Regulatory Relief
Seven TMA physician leaders, a medical student, chief lobbyist Darren Whitehurst, and I are traveling to Washington, D.C., this week to lobby along with the Coalition of State Medical Societies for repeal of Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula and relief from onerous federal regulations. The visits to Congress coincide with the American Medical Association’s National Advocacy Conference. We’ll meet with Texas’ two U.S. senators and our House members. I’ll give you a full report in next week’s EVPGram.
