Medicare

As the leading force for Medicare reform in Washington, D.C., the AMA advocates for corrections in the structure of the Medicare physician payment program and enactments of stable and adequate annual Medicare physician payment updates for physicians, such as a permanent fix to the sustainable growth rate (SGR).

Physicians can make use of the AMA's Medicare Physician Payment Action Kit which provides a detailed outlook of how each state fares with the current legislation and provides updates on legislative efforts related to the sustainable growth rate (SGR).
