Letter to House Leadership Cites Comprehensive Legislation
by House Energy & Commerce, Ways & Means, and Senate
February 20, 2014
Dear House Leadership,
The undersigned organizations, representing internal medicine
and related subspecialties, applaud the unprecedented bipartisan
agreement by the House Energy & Commerce, Ways & Means, and
Senate Finance Committees on comprehensive legislation to repeal
Medicare's flawed Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula. This
legislation, the SGR Repeal and Medicare Payment Modernization
Act, H.R. 4015/S. 2000, represents years of policy development
toward a new physician payment system that brings better value to
patients and to the entire health care system. We urge you to
expedite this legislation to the floor for a vote and enact it
before April 1st.
To date, we have endured 11 years of SGR patches amounting to
$154 billion of wasted dollars. It is time to end once and for all
this fiscally irresponsible practice of short-term SGR patches,
which only grows more expensive by the day and takes a heavy toll
on physician practices and patient care.
With enactment of this legislation, physicians will no longer be
faced with the threat of annual payment cuts. Instead, physicians
will see positive, stable baseline payments for 5 years.
Physician-led efforts to improve quality and lower costs will be
recognized with higher incentive updates. Physicians will also have
the opportunity to receive higher updates for moving into
alternative payment models that focus on accountability and care
coordination, including Patient-Centered Primary Care
Medical Homes and Patient-Centered Medical Home Specialty
Practices. H.R. 4015/S. 2000 will finally bring us toward a
more efficient, cost-saving system.
Congress has an historic opportunity to enact bipartisan,
bicameral SGR-repeal legislation, the product of unprecedented
effort on the part of the Medicare committees and so many in the
medical community. We are counting on you to get this done, and to
do so before the next scheduled SGR payment cut on April
