While signing a repeal for SGR is wonderful, signing the Medicare Physician Payment Innovation Act of 2012 supports, "fully repeal(ing) the SGR, stabilizes current payment rates to ensure beneficiary access in the near-term, eliminates scheduled SGR cuts, creates positive incentives for undervalued primary, preventive and coordinated care services, and sets out a clear path toward comprehensive payment reform."

Dear Petitioner, Cutting payments to Medicare providers penalizes physicians for a flawed system and jeopardizes treatment to Medicade consumers. Repealing SGR is only a bandaid to the problem, not a solution. I want a long term solution to this problem, which is put forth by the Medicare Physician Payment Innovation Act of 2012. I'm asking you to sign this petition to help us reach our goal of getting noticed by the US Congress. If you know others that would be interested, please feel free to forward this along as well.
you have the power to create change.
