Following years of advocacy by the nation's physicians standing up for their patients and their practices, Congress repealed the sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula. The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) permanently eliminates SGR (and its annual threat of physician payment cuts) and provides positive annual payment updates lasting through 2019.

From research to education, and advocacy to practice management tools, the AMA is providing the key resources physicians need through this long-term transition.
