ACP congratulates Congress on veto override of H.R. 6331
Date:7/16/2008

"Enactment of H.R. 6331 represents an important first step in transforming Medicare from a program that was designed to cover and pay for treatment of acute medical conditions to one that recognizes the value of preventive, primary, principal and coordinated care by internists, other primary care physicians, and internist-subspecialists," explained Dr. Harris.

"With H.R. 6331 now law, Congress can redirect its attention from just 'stopping the cut' to enacting comprehensive reforms to correct a broken physician payment system," Dr. Harris continued. "We look forward to working with Congress and the President on comprehensive and long-term reforms of Medicare payment and coverage policies to once again make internal medicine and primary care the top choices of our best and brightest young people, and to sustain the committed internists who are struggling to keep their practices open when Medicare doesn't even cover their overhead."
