Your Help Needed Now to Stabilize Medicare!

We need your voice and just a few minutes of your time.

Over the past week, Congressional leaders have negotiated bipartisan legislation that would permanently repeal the flawed sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula, replacing it with positive physician payment reforms. APA is asking for your help to get this legislation over the finish line.

If Congress does not act by March 31, physician Medicare payments will be cut by 21%. This is a direct threat to Medicare providers and our patients, who are disproportionately hurt by declining Medicare reimbursements. Stability in Medicare is long overdue. Please visit APA’s Legislative Action Center and make sure that Congress hears your voice today.

Thank you for your advocacy.
