MDs in Congress: Focus on Regulations, Not Legislation

Physicians' strategy for lobbying Congress this year should focus on influencing the wording of regulations, not on getting laws enacted, a member of Congress said at the American Medical Association's (AMA) annual advocacy meeting.

“If I were you, one thing I'd be doing is not worrying about big legislation passing Congress," said Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.)  Instead, “I’d be getting to know Andy [Slavitt, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)] very, very well," especially since Slavitt's agency will be busy implementing the new physician payment system that will replace the much-maligned sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula.  Because it's a presidential election year, "It's not going to be a year where we [in Congress] try to throw long passes and score big touchdowns; it's going to be a year where we try to get the things done that need done and don't interfere with the presidential election process," he said.
