Urge Your U.S. Representative to sign onto the SGR Repeal Letter
Physicians have been fighting an annual battle with Congress to prevent cuts to Medicare physician payments for more than a decade. This year Congress has an opportunity to put a permanent end to the sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula.
Earlier this month, Reps. Bill Flores (R-TX) and Dan Maffei (D-NY) circulated a bipartisan ‘Dear Colleague’ letter addressed to the House of Representatives’ leadership asking that they repeal the SGR now. The two Congressmen are urging their colleagues in the House add their names to this important letter
