ABC Invited to White House Reception for Supporters of Repeal of SGR
On Tuesday, April 21, ABC Chief Executive Officer Cassandra McCullough was an invited guest of President Obama at a reception in the White House Rose Garden thanking supporters of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). The recently enacted legislation repealed the Medicare sustainable growth rate formula (SGR) and will bring stability to physician payments, extend funding of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and improve quality programs and access to healthcare. This invitation was due to the hard work and dedication of ABC's strong advocacy membership base. We thank everyone for their support of this long-awaited legislation!
