Read The Coalition for 21st Century Medicine Letter to The Honorable Harry Reid and The Honorable Mitch McConnell Regarding the Support of the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) Legislation

The Coalition for 21st Century Medicine (C21) supports the bipartisan sustainable growth rate (SGR) legislation introduced to protect Medicare physician payment and provide reform to the Medicare and Medicaid programs. In particular, the legislation modernizes the Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule (CLFS) with a framework for market based payment and coding of advanced diagnostic tests. We appreciate your leadership on personalized medicine issues, and the bipartisan process that developed this legislation with input from a large cross section of different stakeholders.
