AMA President Uses Blog to Call for Repeal of SGR

AMA President J. James Rohack, MD, has posted a guest column on the popular physician blog KevinMD.com (http://www.kevinmd.com/) about the need for permanent repeal of the broken Medicare physician payment formula (sustainable growth rate or SGR). Dr. Rohack makes the case that permanent repeal must be part of health reform this year.
