American College of Physicians reacts to Congressional
agreement affecting devastating impact on federal healthcare
Statement attributable to:
Molly Cooke, MD, FACP
President of the American College of Physicians
December 11, 2013
(Washington) - The American College of Physicians is greatly
encouraged by the bipartisan budget conference agreement, the
Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 (BBA), announced by House Budget
Chairman Paul Ryan and Senate Budget Chairwoman Patty Murray. ACP
welcomes the BBA's relief from sequestration for vital health care
programs in fiscal year 2014 and believes it is a true step in the
right direction. Across-the-board sequester cuts in 2013 had a
devastating impact on federal healthcare programs, including
federal health workforce programs, medical research and public
health programs. The BBA provides much-needed respite from
sequestration, restoring about $23 billion or almost two-thirds of
the scheduled sequestration cuts for nondefense discretionary
programs in FY2014.
In addition, with an overall topline budget number for FY2014,
the BBA would afford a clear pathway for Congress to replace the
harmful 2013 sequestration cuts with passage of appropriations
bills through regular order. ACP urges congressional appropriators
to prioritize funding for the nation's health workforce in the
Title VII Health Professions and Title VIII Nurse Education
programs, medical research at the National Institutes of Health and
public health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
ACP is hopeful that this bipartisan compromise will lead to funding
certainty for these and other programs and also bring needed
reinvestment in important healthcare programs.
The budget conference agreement is also expected to have an
amendment that provides a necessary three month bridge to avert a
near-25 percent Medicare physician payment cut on Jan. 1, 2014
resulting from the Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula,
replacing it with a positive update of 0.5 percent. This measure
will allow Congress time to complete work early next year on
comprehensive legislation to repeal the Medicare SGR formula, which
is being considered by the Senate Finance and Ways and Means
committees on Thursday.
The American College of Physicians is the
largest medical specialty organization and the second-largest
physician group in the United States. ACP members include 137,000
internal medicine physicians (internists), related subspecialists,
