Urge Congress to Act Now to Repeal SGR!
Ask Your Lawmaker to Support S. 2000/H.R. 4015



Please take a minute to send a message to your lawmakers encouraging them to support
the SGR Repeal and Medicare Provider Payment Modernization Act of 2014 ( S. 2000 / H.R. 4015).


Bill # H.R. 4015: http://capwiz.com/asco/issues/bills/?billid=63090121




Your Help is CRUCIAL!
This bill will not be considered without a significant show of support from the physician community. ASCO believes the SGR repeal legislation represents significant progress toward the goal of adopting a more reliable payment system that reflects the reality and cost of today's medical practice environment. 

The legislation:
  • Repeals the SGR
  • Provides a 0.5 percent payment update for five years
  • Emphasizes quality improvement
  • Supports the use of clinical data registries
  • Streamlines current federal incentive programs
  • Encourages provider participation in alternative payment models, including patient-centered medical homes
