Medicare Physician Reimbursement
MGMA's Government Affairs department is dedicated to informing its members about the latest developments in Medicare physician reimbursement. This seemingly never-ending battle will continue until Congress finds a permanent fix to the flawed sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula.
News Alert: SGR Repealed!
The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) was signed into law on April 16, 2015. The legislation averted a 21% cut to Medicare physician rates and permanently repealed the flawed Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula. MACRA had wide bipartisan, bicameral support, passing by large majorities in both the House of Representatives (392-37) and the Senate (92-8).
