Stop the Medicare Meltdown

Sponsored by America's Medical Societies

Save Medicare Today

Doctors want to take care of Medicare patients. Congress is forcing doctors to limit the number of Medicare patients we see or to quit taking Medicare patients altogether.

When it comes to health care reform, America's doctors keep telling Congress to “keep what’s good in our health care system and fix only what’s wrong.” Something that is very wrong is the formula Medicare uses to pay physicians. Each year for the past decade, physicians have faced steep payment cuts that make it harder and harder for them to care for their Medicare patients. Congress knows about the problem. They know the faulty formula Medicare uses to pay doctors does not work but they have not fixed the problem. We need your help to convince Congress to fix Medicare now. Please sign the petition and send it to your friends to sign as well.

Please fix Medicare by developing a rational Medicare physician payment system that automatically keeps up with the cost of running a practice and is backed by a fair, stable funding formula.
