The clock is ticking for Congress to permanently repeal the sustainable growth rate (SGR) before the March 31 deadline.
Bipartisan repeal legislation (H.R. 1470/S. 810) is expected on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives next week, but Congress needs to know that physicians and patients demand action to fix Medicare NOW.
That’s why we need you to act now – keep the pressure on Congress and ask your elected officials to vote yes on H.R. 1470/S. 810.
1.) Call your U.S. representative and senators using the AMA’s toll-free Physicians Grassroots Hotline: (800) 833-6354.
2.) Send an urgent email to your lawmakers reinforcing the need for SGR repeal now – Click Here!
3.) Contact key legislators still undecided on this most critical issue directly through their own social media channels and share with your own Facebook friends and Twitter followers as well – Click Here!
This is urgent. There is still time for Congress to pass meaningful SGR reform before the deadline, but it has to act now!
P.S. The AMA is promoting a National Physicians Call-In Day on Tuesday, March 24. Please help spread the word to your colleagues – we want as many physicians as possible to be flooding the phone lines of their U.S. representatives to make the case for SGR repeal now! Make sure you call on Tuesday: (800) 833-6354.
