New SGR Replacement Plan Unveiled

Once again, Texans in Congress are playing key roles in fixing our broken Medicare payment system. The latest joint proposal comes from the House Ways and Means Committee and Senate Finance Committee. Rep. Kevin Brady chairs the Ways and Means Committee's Subcommittee on Health, and Sen. John Cornyn sits on the Senate Finance Committee and its Subcommittee on Health Care. 

Another bill, sponsored by Rep. Michael Burgess, MD (R-Texas), has already passed the House Energy and Commerce Committee with bipartisan support. TMA will work with all three of them, and the rest of the Texas delegation to Congress, to come up with the best bill to replace Medicare's Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula. 

TMA leaders will meet with these Texas leaders before, during, and after the upcoming American Medical Association House of Delegates meeting.
