AMA Sign-On Medicare Physician Payment Letter

September 22, 2022

Dear Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Schumer, Leader McConnell, and Leader McCarthy:

"The American Medical Association (AMA) and undersigned national specialty and state medical societies representing the vast majority of physicians practicing in the United States continue to be deeply alarmed about the mounting financial instability of the Medicare physician payment system.

This instability is being driven by a confluence of fiscal uncertainties physician practices face related to statutory payment cuts, perennial lack of inflationary updates, significant administrative barriers, and the cumulative impact of the pandemic. The Medicare payment system remains on an unsustainable path threatening beneficiaries’ access to physicians."
