AMA Urges Congress to Stop Medicare Cuts
Date:9/20/2007

aid what you were paid in 1991? Most physicians' offices are small businesses. And no business can keep its doors open if it can't pay its bills."

The cuts also hit more than 86 thousand members of military families in New Mexico because rates in their health insurance system, called TRICARE, are tied to Medicare.

"For seniors, for military families, for everyone in the state, we need Congress to act to stop the Medicare physician payment cuts," said Dr. Plested.

"We urge New Mexico's senators and representatives to reject the pending 2008 Medicare cut and make payments reflect the increasing costs of medical care in order to prevent more seniors from having problems finding a new primary care physician or specialist," Dr. Plested said.

"We need the Senate to act now. New Mexico Senators Pete Domenici and Jeff Bingaman have been supportive in the past, and we appreciate that support. But New Mexico's patients need them to fix this problem now by working in the Senate for a solution that provides needed relief and doesn't make the problem worse," Dr. Plested said.

"That's why we're also getting our patients involved through the AMA's Patients Action Network. So far, more than a million have signed on. We're asking them to urge the Senate to take action to provide meaningful relief from drastic Medicare physician payment cuts," said Dr. Plested.

The Web site is http://www.patientsactionnetwork.org. The toll free number is 1-888-434-6200.

"Congress needs to act to preserve seniors' access to care and put Medicare on a firm foundation for the future. They must keep their promise to America's seniors," said Dr. Plested.
