Physicians: Call Your Congressperson and Senators Today to Repeal and Replace the SGR! A bill to permanently repeal Medicare’s fatally flawed Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula is finally before Congress: The SGR Repeal and Medicare Provider Payment Modernization Act of 2014 (HR 1415 / S 2000). There is significant pushback from non-physician groups, so Congress needs to hear from every San Diego County physician today that this matters and that it must pass! We don't want Congress to kick the can down the road AGAIN! 1) Please Contact All Three of Your Federal Legislators: Your U.S. House Representative from San Diego California Senator Barbara Boxer California Senator Dianne Feinstein 2) By Calling AMA's Grassroots Hotline at (888) 434-6200 In under 90 seconds, you will be connected to your choice of our two senators or your congressperson (call all three!), and they even give you a short summary of the talking points. 3) And Tell Them Each to: Protect access to care in California and enact Medicare physician payment reform NOW! Seize this unique opportunity! The cost to fix the Medicare SGR is at an all-time low and there is bipartisan agreement on the legislation. Oppose another one-year SGR patch. Cosponsor HR 4015 / S 2000 today. This matters — Congress counts phone calls! And please forward this email to all of your physician colleagues!
