Last week, the House passed a one-year Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) patch (H.R. 4302). Last night, the Senate passed this bill, and today, President Obama signed it into law. The House has voted 18 times for short-term patches or “doc fixes,” and I am disappointed that once again we passed a short term patch instead of a long-term fix. Providers need the ability to plan long-term and our seniors should not be denied access to care because their doctors cannot afford to treat them.
One of the best parts of my job is supporting our military men and women all the way through their careers, from nominating outstanding high school students to our military academies to making sure that our veterans have proper care.
