The “Doc Fix” Is In
The Medicare“doc fix” bill, officially called the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) passed 92-8 fixing the Sustainable Growth Rate formula. This fix happened at the last moment before Medicare doc cuts of 21% went into effect under the old formula.
The fix also extended CHIP for two years, raised premiums for high income seniors, and cut Medigap spending. You can learn all about the changes on our Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) page.
