A pos­si­ble SGR so­lu­tion?

Modern Healthcare - - OPINIONS LETTERS -

Re­gard­ing “Sen­a­tors urge crack­down on Med­i­caid providers who cheat on taxes” (Mod­ern­Health­care.com, Aug. 2): Tax­payer dol­lars fund Med­i­caid, which is be­ing paid to providers who aren’t pay­ing their taxes. And yet the fed­eral gov­ern­ment won’t hold back the taxes owed from the providers’ Med­i­caid pay­ments. I sug­gest the gov­ern­ment col­lect the back taxes or with­hold their Med­i­caid pay­ments and use that money to fix the sus­tain­able growth-rate for­mula.
