Flawed SGR formula continues; Has not lead to better payment
Now have bipartisan agreement in both House and Senate on
(Washington) "Physicians throughout America today are
recognizing a truly 'Rotten Anniversary,'" Molly Cooke, MD, FACP,
president of the American College of Physicians (ACP), declared
today. "On February 20, 2003, the first of 16 Medicare Sustainable
Growth Rate (SGR) Formula 'patches' was passed by Congress."
For more than a decade, Congress has continually stepped in with
a patch to prevent scheduled physician cuts under the flawed SGR
formula. Eleven years later, and after 16 patches, ACP told its
members today that $154 billion in taxpayer money has done nothing
to lead to a better physician payment system.
Dr. Cooke reminded members today about an historic bipartisan
agreement in both the House and Senate that contains policies to
replace the SGR. The bill, H.R. 4015, the SGR Repeal and Medicare
Provider Payment Modernization Act of 2014 (S. 2000 in the Senate),
is strongly supported by physician membership organizations across
the specialties and across the country.
Dr. Cooke told ACP members that Congress must now move the bill
to the floor for a vote and get it to the president before the
current (16th) patch expires on March 31. She told ACP members that
it was critical that they "remind Congress of this 'Rotten
Anniversary' and get messages to them via every social media
