The Honorable John A. Boehner
Speaker
U.S. House of Representatives
H-232 U.S. Capitol Building
Washington, DC 20515

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi
Minority Leader
U.S. House of Representatives
H-204 U.S. Capitol Building
Washington, DC 20515 

Dear Speaker Boehner and Representative Pelosi:

Long-awaited bipartisan legislation to permanently repeal the fatally flawed sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula is now before both chambers of Congress with the recent introduction of the SGR Repeal and Medicare Provider Payment Modernization Act of 2014 (H.R. 4015/ S. 2000). The undersigned physician organizations strongly urge you to pass this legislation by March 31st.

Congress has long recognized the imperative of reforming the Medicare physician payment system. Over the past 12 years, Congress has spent $153.7 billion on 16 SGR patches, far more than the cost of permanently reforming the Medicare physician payment system. Further reliance on legislative patches is fiscally irresponsible. We can no longer afford to spend taxpayer money on stopgap measures that preserve a failed policy.

This bipartisan, bicameral agreement is a significant achievement resulting from tireless efforts among the three key congressional committees of jurisdiction to develop a solution for a problem that has bedeviled lawmakers for years. This legislation incorporates many recommendations from the physician community to reform the health care delivery and physician payment system and improve care for America’s seniors. It also includes significant resources and tools to help physicians transition to new payment and delivery models.

We strongly urge you to quickly seize the opportunity to take advantage of this work and momentum to finally break the SGR status quo and pass a long-term solution. Physicians are once again facing looming Medicare cuts of 24 percent on April 1.

The physician community stands ready and eager to work with you to advance this critical legislation to build a more stable Medicare program that will better serve America’s senior citizens.

Sincerely,
