House passes one-year SGR patch 

Today the House of Representatives passed by voice vote H.R. 4302, which would temporarily delay the 24% cut to Medicare physician payments resulting from the sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula for one year. MGMA has joined with physician organizations in Washington to continue to advocate for a permanent SGR fix, and does not support what would be the 17th short-term patch Congress has enacted since the SGR’s inception.

Though the House has passed this legislation, the Senate must now act and choose to either take up full repeal of the SGR, or another temporary solution to this problem. MGMA will continue to update members on the status of the SGR through the Washington Connection.
