ISIS joined more than 100 state and specialty medical societies in sending a letter to Congress outlining the principles for repealing the flawed physician payment, sustainable growth formula (SGR) and a successful transition to a Medicare program that would function well.


Physicians face a steep Medicare fees cut of 27 percent in January 2013. This situation is unacceptable – it creates tremendous hardships and instability, stifles innovation and erodes access for Medicare patients. The formula must be repealed so that the medical community can work toward implementing the outlined principles and work on developing a productive environment. To view the letter click here.
