Three Things MGMA Urges You to do to Help Avert the 29.5% Medicare Payment Cut

In its Washington Connexion email a few minutes ago, MGMA is asking for your help to stop the 29.5% payment cut scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2012 (less than 100 days from now).

Healthcare providers, and the rest of us who care about healthcare,  need to keep pressure on Congress to address this issue.  MGMA suggests doing the following three things:

  • Understand the impact the payment cut will have on your practice.
  • Sign a petition and ask others to do the same and make your opinion known.
  • Urge your elected representative to repeal the sustainable growth rate requirements that are causing these cuts. 

I will add two other things that you can do: 

  • Express yourself to your national and state professional associations.  They have lobbyists and need your support. 
  • Enlist the assistance of your vendors and advisors and ask them to voice their support against this scheduled cut.

Do not wait for others to act.
