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.
Please fix Medicare. Doctors need to be paid well for all their hard work. It cost them a tremendous amount of money to complete college and medical school not to mention their internships. PAY THEM WELL. If they aren't paid well, the smart people will go into another profession.
There is no excuse whatsoever for not Strengthening Medicare. A Country is judged by the way it takes care of it's citizens, and has a moral and ethical responsibility to do so to it's highest standards. We MUST NOT alter the promise of America as a Nation, nor fall short of our responsibilities as a civilized people.
I am asking Congress to continue your work by fixing the crumbling foundation of our health care system. If physicians are not reimbursed adequately for treating us senior citizens then they will not be able to treat us. I worked all my life and have paid into Medicare for many years.
