ASA Continues Participation in SGR Reform Discussion

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

On June 11, ASA responded to the latest request for additional feedback from the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce regarding their ongoing proposal to repeal and replace the Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula.

ASA's response built off previous comments that state an important precursor to the development of any form of SGR repeal and replacement is "acknowledgment and remedy" of anesthesiology's "33 percent problem." 

In response to the Committee's questions, ASA also advocated for five years or more of payment stability prior to the implementation of any new system and that a mechanism be created to extend the period if there is "a lack of developed measures or inadequate quality infrastructure."  

ASA remains committed to repealing and replacing the flawed SGR mechanism with a system that more accurately reflects the cost of providing care to Medicare patients.
