Are you outraged by the looming Medicare cuts and upset about how they will affect your practice and your patients?
The ISMA encourages you to join fellow physicians from around the country by calling U.S. senators and congressional representatives. Urge them to act on this important issue! The 25 percent cut is coming Dec. 1; Congress must act during the Lame Duck session occurring next week.
The AMA’s grassroots hotline is available to you and all physicians at (800) 833-6354.
Also, consider educating your patients about this issue and enlisting their support. The AMA has a new flier you can distribute or display in your reception area. It urges patients on Medicare or TRICARE to contact their legislators using the AMA’s patient advocacy hotline, (888) 434-6200.
