Medicare To Cut Your Benefits By 21% on March 1st

children, family, veteran, life, health

On March 1, 2010, doctors face a minimum across-the-board cut of 21% in Medicare reimbursements as mandated by the Medicare Sustained Growth Rate (SGR) formula.
 
These cuts are a problem for all Americans because an AMA survey shows that these drastic cuts in Medicare payments will make it harder for patients to see their doctor.
 
Consider some of these alarming survey results:
 
• 60% of all doctors say a Medicare cut will force them to decrease or stop seeing new Medicare patients and to discontinue nursing home visits.
 
• A majority of doctors in rural communities say they will no longer be able to conduct important outreach services due to nine years of projected cuts.
 
• Nearly 75% of all doctors say the Medicare cuts will force them to delay purchasing critical new medical equipment.
 
• 65% of doctors say the Medicare cuts will force them to delay purchase of new health care technology.
 
Many doctors report that more Medicare patients are now being treated in emergency rooms for conditions that could have been treated in a physician's office, that it has become more difficult to refer patients to certain medical and surgical specialists, and that many seniors now must travel further for essential medical care.
 
I strongly urge you to contact your elected official to act IMMEDIATELY to stop the 21% cut in Medicare/TRICARE payments to doctors now scheduled to take effect on March 1, 2010.
 
As demonstrated by the one-year band-aids since 2002, We The People, need a permanent fix to this situation.
 
While fixes were part of the national health reform legislation, those bills are now on hold and we cannot wait while Congress tries to figure out what to do.
 
Unless we tell the Congress, act now, millions of seniors and military beneficiaries risk having their doctors stop seeing them, and thousands of stroke/accident victims will start bumping against the therapy cap.
 
You must ACT NOW and contact your elected official to reverse the 21% payment cut and preserve essential health care access for millions of seniors and military families.
 
As a minimum, extend the moratorium on cuts to physician reimbursements. Of course, a best solution would be to repeal the SGR (Sustained Growth Rate) formula with a better formula.

Stop MEDICARE/TRICARE Payment Cuts

Unless our Congress acts within the next 14 days, MEDICARE and TRICARE payments to doctors will be cut by 10.6% in July of 2008. If that comes to pass your access to health care will be much reduced because more doctors will stop seeing MEDICARE and TRICARE patients.

PHISHING SCAM AGAINST SLAIN VETERANS FAMILIES

identity theft, solider, veteran

A phishing scam has been sent to families of fallen Soldiers. As part of the scam, the proponents request personal information, such as SSN, DOB, addresses, etc., and are instructed to come to either visit the Army Human Resources Command Offices in Alexandria, VA, or email the information to an overseas Yahoo account.
Like most scams, the grammar is poor, it is not on official letterhead, nor does it come from a valid Army e-mail account. CRSC will never ask for personally identifiable information to be sent over e-mail due to security concerns. CRSC will never promise payment or award of any kind. CRSC is not eligible for SBP.
As Ambassadors and Affiliates, the program office wants to ensure you are aware of the scam in case you are asked about it.
Thank you,

Stop the 10% cuts in Medicare Payments

military, veteran

Stop the 1 July 10% cuts to Physician Reimbursements  
 
In three short months Medicare will cut physician payments by more than 10 percent. This cut will be a disaster for both Medicare and Tricare patients, as 60 percent of physicians say they will be forced to limit the number of new Medicare and Tricare patients they can treat. Senator Debbie Stabenow has introduced S.2785 which is an excellent step to preserve seniors' and military retiree access to health care. Please send the following message to your Senators -

As a former Marine and a veteran, I strongly urge you to write your Senator and Congress person to co-sponsorship and actively support S.2785, the Save Medicare Act of 2008. This legislative impacts both seniors on Medicare and military retirees on Tricare. Realize that Tricare reimbursement ratios are keyed to, but may not be greater than Medicare reimbursement ratios.
 As you are aware there looms a great health care crisis in our country. A physician operates a small business: a medical practice. While the costs of doing continue to increase, Medicare physician reimbursements have been decreasing according to the defective Sustained Growth Rate (SGR) formula of Medicare law. This is a problem for patients, military retirees, and their families, because it will force doctors to refuse new Medicare patients, discourages many from being able to invest in new health technology and makes many think about cutting staff or closing their medical practices altogether. The S.2785 would suspend the Medicare physician reimbursement cuts for 18 months and will not increase the cost of permanently fixing the fatally flawed SGR formula. The 18 month suspension will allow some stability into the system for seniors and physicians forced to make difficult practice decisions because of now scheduled payment cuts. These 18 months will allow Congress time to work on a long-term solution to repair the now broken physician reimbursement system without having to merely delay the cuts twice in one year.

This is not a partisan issue. Please, champion everyone you know to contact their Congress person to Cosponsor S.2785 today.
