Now is the Time for SGR Reform
Congressman Chris Collins today issued the following statement after the Subcommittee on Health completed its subcommittee hearing entitled “A Permanent Solution to the SGR: The Time is Now.”
“The flawed Sustainable Growth Rate formula (SGR) has created uncertainty in the Medicare program for far too long,” said Congressman Collins. “The hearings over the past two days demonstrate that this Congress is serious about finding a long-term solution to this problem. This issue has thwarted Congress in the past, but I am optimistic that this year we will finally enact a bipartisan, common sense solution to this problem.”
