AMCNO Continues to Advocate for SGR Repeal

The AMCNO, along with national and state medical associations, continues to advocate for replacement of the flawed Medicare physician payment formula. The SGR (or Sustainable Growth Rate) formula is widely acknowledged to be a policy failure and it is time to enact its repeal. The SGR has forced Congress to intervene 17 times since 2003 to prevent steep payment cuts and preserve seniors’ access to care, and we believe it is time to establish new payment methods that will support the healthcare delivery systems that Medicare patients and American taxpayers deserve.

The AMCNO recently sent a letter to Congress asking for the repeal of the SGR. To view the letter, click here
