Take Action Repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB)
Tell Congress to repeal a controversial provision of the Health System Reform law that establishes an Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). The IPAB's broad authority, the lack of flexibility in its mandate, and its reliance on provider payment cuts to reduce Medicare spending are among the most glaring problems that threaten the financial viability of physicians' practices. IPAB would effectively subject physicians to double-jeopardy for cuts so long as the SGR Medicare physician payment formula remains in place.

It's time to move away from arbitrary and broken systems that rely on payment cuts and focus on new payment and delivery models that gives physicians the ability to improve patient care and reduces costs to stabilize Medicare for seniors now and in the future.

Contact your representative and senators today and urge them to repeal the IPAB by supporting H.R. 351 & S. 351 – Protecting Seniors' Access to Medicare Act of 2013!
