Stop the Cuts: Ensure Security for Medicare Patients

Tell Congress we need a permanent, bipartisan solution to prevent seniors from losing access to their doctors.

Congress is working to stop a nearly 25% pay cut to doctors before the end of the year. Such a large pay cut would make it harder for doctors to continue seeing Medicare beneficiaries or accept new ones.  You’ve been paying into Medicare and you deserve to have the security of knowing you can see the doctors you trust.
 
In 1997, Congress created a flawed doctor payment system that is failing to keep up with the cost of providing care to seniors.   Yet, each time doctors have faced drastic Medicare cuts, Congress has put a Band-Aid on the problem, leaving the same broken payment system in place.
 
To prevent doctors from leaving Medicare, Congress must permanently replace this system and create a stable payment system that ensures affordable, quality care for seniors.
 
Now is the time for Congress to act!  Kicking the can down the road will only drive up the cost of fixing the problem.
 
Will you join us in calling on Congress to stop kicking the can down the road and ensure you have access to the care you need?  The clock is ticking.  Don’t wait to make your voice heard – send a message now.
