Senate failed to join House in passing historic healthcare
March 27, 2015
(Washington) The American College of Physicians (ACP) today said
that it is greatly disappointed that the Senate recessed early this
morning without passing legislation to prevent a devastating 21
percent Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) cut to all physician services
provided to Medicare enrollees starting on April 1.
Early yesterday afternoon, ACP commended Speaker John Boehner
and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for reaching agreement on the
policies included in the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization
Act (H.R. 2) and for their steadfast leadership in bringing the
bill to a successful vote in the House of Representatives. ACP
President David A. Fleming, MD, MA, MACP, thanked the House leaders
and said ACP strongly urged the Senate to immediately pass the
Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015, H.R. 2.
This morning, though, Dr. Fleming said, "Doctors and patients
must hold the Senate accountable for not passing SGR repeal and HR
2. They are allowing a 21 percent cut to go into effect on April 1.
Furthermore, because the Senate didn't act, Congress has less than
two days after recess to pass HR 2 and repeal the SGR before the 21
percent cut starts for April 1 claims."
Dr. Fleming noted that, "By not passing the bill, the Senate
failed to join the House in enacting legislation to achieve
historic reforms in physician payment while making other needed
"ACP urges the Senate to pass HR 2, the Medicare Access and CHIP
Reauthorization Act, immediately upon return from the recess, and
before the 21 percent cut begins to be applied to services provided
on or after April 1," Dr. Fleming concluded.
