SGR Update: Senate Passes HR 4302

Camp Amendment Summary

Camp Amendment To H.R. 4015 Offered By Mr. Camp Of Michigan

Medicare SGR Repeal and Beneficiary Access Improvement Act of 2014

“Be careful for what you wish”

“Be careful for what you wish”—As a child, I was often told this, particularly when granted a most coveted item or privilege.   However, as I became older, I recognized that with the acceptance of the item or privilege, came the ownership of maintenance and responsibility, neither of which, was obvious at the time of acquisition, and with time, often tarnished the initial joy and diminished the value of the gift.

Medicare Pay Cut Averted for One Year

The 2012 Medicare physician payment rates have been extended through December 31, 2013. On January 1, Congress passed the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 averting the negative update of 26.5% required by the Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula. This zero percent update to the 2013 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule affects Medicare claims with dates of service after December 31, 2012.
