Could 2013 be the year? A consensus is emerging in Washington that this is the year to put the annual threat of SGR-driven Medicare provider cuts behind us. More importantly, the medical community, key Committees in Congress, the Obama administration and the broader stakeholder community are uniting around the idea that repeal of the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula must be paired with policy changes that moves from today's volume-based reimbursement toward an approach that supports better care at lower cost.
At this NCHC Forum, you'll hear from three leaders at the center of this exciting debate. They will share the perspectives of family practitioners, an innovative medical specialty organization and the nation's leading hospitals on this year's opportunities and the future of health care delivery and payment policy.
