Medicare Physician Payment

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) is actively working with Congress to identify and combat policies that could further administrative burdens on physicians and their practices in order to ensure that the ongoing implementation of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) is accomplished in a way that improves the delivery of medicine for patients.
