AMA Announces Support for Passage of Senate Health Reform Bill
Date:12/21/2009

o primary care physicians and general surgeons in underserved areas while no longer cutting payments to other physicians. It eliminates the tax on physician services for cosmetic surgery and drops the proposed physician enrollment fee for Medicare."

While important improvements have been made to the bill, there is still work to be done, and AMA will continue its advocacy on behalf of patients and physicians through the conference process. Important issues that need to be resolved in the House-Senate conference committee include the creation of a Medicare payment board, quality improvement and Medicare data release initiatives. Separate action is needed early next year to permanently repeal the current Medicare physician payment formula to provide a stable payment system to preserve access to care for America's seniors, baby boomers and military families.

"The AMA will stay engaged in the process to ensure that the final bill that goes to President Obama for his signature will improve the health care system for patients and physicians," said Dr. Wilson.
