Act Now to Fix Medicare

MSDC is joining the American Medical Association (AMA) and other state medical societies and national specialty organizations to press Congress for a permanent fix to the Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) payment formula. The current lame duck session is seen as an ideal opportunity to end the broken cycle of temporary patches. According to AMA President Robert Wah, M.D., "Momentum is building with a growing number of bipartisan members of congress in both the House and the Senate, including the congressional “doc” caucus, declaring their support for immediate action on SGR reform." Physicians are encouraged to call, write or tweet Congress now


The Countdown to ICD-10 Has Begun 

 With less than a year left to transition to the ICD-10 code set, practice management experts advise physicians to begin implementation by working with software vendors and testing their systems, if they haven't already.

The Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) has published a
 factsheet with general guidance and resources. Small medical practices may visit Road to 10, an online resource from CMS designed to help small medical practices jumpstart their ICD-10 transition. Physicians may also check the AMA's ICD-10 website.

Public Health Alerts: Guidance on Ebola 

  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is encouraging physicians to take patient travel histories, isolate patients who report a travel history to an Ebola-affected country and immediately notify the local/state health department. Health professionals are encouraged to visit the CDC's Ebola Website for the most updated information, including training modules for Personal Protective Equipment. They may also see  the AMA's Ebola Resource Center.
