SGR Repeal: We Need Your Help on March 5

 Fix Medicare Now Sticker

The MMS, the AMA and your Medicare patients need you to act now so that we get permanent Medicare payment reform, once and for all.

Congress has consensus legislation to fix the deeply flawed payment formula (also known as the SGR). However, because of a debate over how to pay for it, it’s possible that Congress will pass another temporary patch instead.

  • Another patch is fiscally irresponsible. It will never be cheaper or easier to do than now.
  • Without passage, the care of 1.2 million Medicare and Tricare patients in Mass. may be affected.
  • Physicians and their practices are an essential component of the Massachusetts economy.

March 5, 2014 is National SGR Call-in Day. Our senators and representatives have long been strong supporters of SGR reform. Please call them on Wednesday, thank them for their past support, and ask them to pass permanent SGR reform. Now is the time.

Visit the AMA’s SGR campaign website,, to call, write, or tweet your senators and representative. It’s very easy – just 2 clicks will get the job done!

Thank for your continued support. Remember: The time is now.
