If You Like the SGR … You'll Love the IPAB

Physicians hoped the health system reform law would eliminate the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula that drives down Medicare fees. The SGR, however, remains in place, and the law created a new board, the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), with the authority to cut fees even further, possibly on top of cuts under the SGR.

From August's Texas Medicine.
