ACP applauds introduction of bipartisan bill to eliminate Medicare SGR formula
Date:2/6/2013

of nearly 30 percent on January 1, 2014.

"We enthusiastically support this legislation," continued Dr. Cutler. "It not only addresses the continued threat of the SGR formula, it also moves Medicare beyond a pure fee-for-service payment model toward new models that better align payment with value."

The legislation ensures patient access to physicians while promoting efficiency, quality and value in health care delivery by:

  • Permanently repealing the Sustainable Growth Rate;
  • Stabilizing the current payment system and providing positive payment updates for primary care and specialty physicians;
  • Instituting measures to ensure access to primary care services;
  • Testing and evaluating new payment and delivery models;
  • Identifying best practices and developing a menu of delivery model options;
  • Establishing a transition period for practice transformation;
  • Rewarding providers for high-quality, high-value care;
  • Ensuring long-term stability in the Medicare physician payment system; and
  • Containing the rising growth in health care costs through delivery system reform.

"ACP believes that the bipartisan Medicare Physician Payment Innovation Act of 2013 will benefit seniors, disabled persons and military families," concluded Dr. Cutler. "We strongly urge Congress to pass the bill before the next scheduled SGR cut on January 1, 2014."
