SCAI Call to Action: Permanent SGR Fix in Sight, and We Need Your Help

from SCAI

You can help persuade Congress to fix the sustainable growth rate once and for all. For more than two decades, physicians have faced an annual across-the-board, double-digit cut in Medicare reimbursement as mandated by a law requiring a sustainable growth rate. Unless Congress intervened, physicians' fees would be cut.

This year is no exception: A 21 percent cut is slated to go into effect April 1. In past years, Congress consistently applied a short-term "patch," negating the cut for the year ahead but never delivering a long-term solution. This year, legislation on deck to be introduced in the next few days would offer a permanent fix to the sustainable growth rate issue. SCAI is urging physicians to take action today in support of this legislation. Follow the link for details on how you can help. more
