SGR never made sense

Modern Healthcare - - Opinions Letters -

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).

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
