House Majority Releases Potential SGR Reform

Mon March 11, 2013

The proposal aims at replacing the SGR in a way that would not increase the deficit, while involving the physician community to develop an optimal reimbursement method. Among the many items, medical specialty societies would propose meaningful quality measures in a model that seems to be driven mainly by quality of care.
