Physician Doom and Gloom over Sequester and SGR

November 27, 2001

Physicians are crying doom and gloom over the “sequester,”
2% Medicare cuts starting in 2013 and allowing SGR to fester.

This translates to 2% cuts annually through 2021,
Added to 27.4% SGR cuts starting next January 1.

If the do-nothing Congress does nothing,
And continues to its partisan impasse cling.

This will lead to the worst of improbable possibilities,
Closure of hospital facilities and physician hostilities,

Fewer doctors accepting Medicare patients.
In the good old U.S.A, the richest of nations.

Surely something is amiss.
We can do better than this.

Tweet: The Super Committee's failure may lead to a "Sequester",resulting in Medicare physician cuts of 2% and a 27.4% SGR cut.
