Federal Involvement


 The Coalition of State Medical Societies

 Standing Up for Physicians and Patients in the Nation's Capital

Representing physicians from coast to coast, the Coalition of State Medical Societies comprises 10 state medical associations with more than 180,000 physician and medical student members. The repeal of Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula was an important step forward for health care access for our seniors, and the coalition is grateful for the efforts of the many Senators and Representatives who worked to achieve this repeal.
