Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) made the following statement regarding the Committee’s work towards a permanent physician payment fix, also known as the Medicare sustainable growth rate (SGR).

“SGR is an important issue for physicians and seniors alike who, for over a decade, have been hamstrung by short-term patches instead of the certainty of a permanent solution.  The Committee has made real progress on a bipartisan and bicameral bill.  If that progress continues, I expect the Committee to consider the legislation before the end of next week.”
