SGR never made sense
The sustainable growth rate never made any sense, and it is about time our legislators produced something in “health reform” that is actually meaningful (“Texas lawmaker offers replacement for SGR,” ModernHealth care.com, Oct. 2).
No industry or enterprise could continue to function under the restrictions necessary to maintain a sustainable growth rate. Kudos to those involved.
As expected the American Medical Association continues with lip service and sound bites. This is exactly why they lost my membership, and why they represent only about 25% of U.S. physicians! W. Craig Clark
