Advocacy & Health Policy: How Ob-Gyns Can Thrive After Medical Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) Repeal: ACOG Post-SGR Payment Resources
Following the repeal of SGR in April, ACOG has developed and assembled a number of resources aimed at helping ob-gyns understand the new law. These SGR resources, including a SGR Primer PowerPoint presentation, review new payment options, as well as changes to the current penalties and other key items that offer further detail to those who want to know more. Physicians can now, all in one place, find the basics to understanding their new payment options under Medicaid.
Additionally, ACOG is working with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to develop the detailed implementation of these new payment systems to ensure they’ll work well for ob-gyns and for our patients. The overall goal is to guarantee that ACOG members thrive in a post-SGR world.
