What do you think of MPAC’s vote to repeal the Medicare SGR for pay cuts/freezes?

October 7, 2011

The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission is recommending that Congress cut reimbursements to specialists and freeze pay to primary-care physicians rather than continue with the sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula in place for years. Is this a good idea? Weigh in below and tell us.
