CMA urges physicians to thank Congress for SGR vote

April 28, 2015

Congress was able to put differences aside and overwhelmingly pass H.R. 2—historic bipartisan, bicameral Medicare reform legislation—once and for all!

The California members of Congress who supported H.R. 2 deserve a hearty "thank you" for their bold action to repeal Medicare's broken sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula and ensure significant reforms are made to Medicare, shifting the focus to better care and better patient outcomes. H.R.2 also extends the expiring Children’s Health Insurance Program. For more details on the bill, click here for the California Medical Association’s (CMA) summary.

Only two out of 55 members of the California delegation did not support the bill: Tim McClintock, R-Sacramento, and Darrell Issa, R-San Diego.
