On January 1, 2012, physicians will have a 27.4% Medicare SGR payment cut! Congress has chosen to ignore our appeals and must be held accountable.
Physicians should not be forced to finance the Medicare program.
This is a case of ‘The Law of Large Numbers.’ We need to inundate Congress with calls, emails, and faxes.
Please join in on the campaign. All you have to do is sign on to this downloadable appeal letter and fax it to any or all of the congressional leaders below.
