Doctors’ groups start Medicare petition

The Tennessee Medical Association is one several doctors’ groups across the nation asking people to sign a petition urging Congress stop delaying a fix for the Medicare and Tricare reimbursement formula.
This year, Congress has repeatedly put off what to do about a 21 percent physician payment cut by delaying it from taking effect month-by-month. Currently, the cuts are scheduled to take effect June 1.
The cuts are required by the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, which sets a sustainable growth-rate (SGR) formula for setting physician reimbursements. Doctors and health care experts have long complained the SGR formula is flawed.
