An Update on the SGR

This week, the House is scheduled to vote on an appropriations bill that would extend the current Medicare payment rates through the end of February. This extension would stall the 21.2 percent reduction that is scheduled to go into effect January 1, 2010.

Dr. Lori Heim, president of the Academy, recorded a short message explaining where we stand with the SGR, what it means for you and how you can help.

Send a message to Congress. Tell them physicians cannot continue to practice under this flawed formula.
