Beginning March 1, 2010, Medicare with cut all physician's payments by 21.2%. Why has this happened - because Congress has failed to permanently repeal the flawed Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula.
This reduction in payments will force many doctors to re-evaluate their care of Medicare patients. The lack of action by the U.S. Congress will hurt our seniors who are some of the most vulnerable patients who desperately need medical care. Call your senators and representatives and express your outrage!
