Congress fails to stop cuts

For the second time in as many months, Congress has failed to stop Medicare payment cuts based on the sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula from going into effect. As of yesterday, physicians are facing a 21.3 percent reduction in Medicare payments.

The executive committee of the AAFP Board of Directors has decided that if Congress cannot provide a permanent fix for the SGR, then the AAFP will not support legislation that provides a temporary payment update unless the bill includes a positive primary care payment differential and extends at least through Dec. 31, 2012.

Call, write, or meet with your Senators this week while they are home for Memorial Day recess. Ask them to rescind your Medicare pay cut and institute a long-term fix to the flawed SGR formula.
