Join National Effort to “Fix Medicare Now”

Montgomery County Medical Society Provided by MCMS Administration

“According to an AMA analysis of Medicare Trustees data, Medicare physician payment has been reduced 26% adjusted for inflation from 2001-2023.  The Medicare physician payment system lacks an adequate annual physician payment update, unlike those that apply to other Medicare provider payments.  A continuing statutory freeze in annual Medicare physician payments is scheduled to last until 2026, when updates resume at a rate of 0.25% per year indefinitely, well below inflation rates.  That’s why it’s so urgent that Congress work with the physician community to develop long-term solutions to the systematic problems with the Medicare physician payment system and preserve patient access to quality care.”
