SGR Repeal Update
(April 16, 2015) - The Senate followed the House in overwhelmingly passing comprehensive legislation and repealed the SGR formula. Physicians will transition to a new value-based system. This comes after an overwhelming show of support in the House, where both Republicans and Democrats voted in favor of the bill. The President signed the bill, which averted a 21 percent physician payment cut from taking effect.
