AMA videos call for permanent SGR fix, not more patches – Action

As the March 1 deadline approaches for Congress to prevent a 27 percent cut in Medicare physician payments, the AMA has released online videos emphasizing the urgency to repeal Medicare’s failed sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula. The videos—one geared toward Congress and the other toward seniors—warn that temporary patches to the SGR threaten access to care and choice of physician for seniors while increasing the taxpayer burden.

Call the AMA’s grassroots hotline today at (800) 833-6354 and tell your members of Congress to protect patients, physicians and taxpayers by repealing the SGR.
