The NC Medical Society has issued a plea to each North Carolina member of the US House of Representatives and US Senate to take action to avert the scheduled cuts in Medicare reimbursement.

The Society is joined by 25 partner state societies as co-signers on the letter and we remain hopeful that Congress will take the necessary legislative steps to prevent the catastrophic cuts from taking effect. A sample of the letter sent to each member can be accessed here.

The NCMS has issued a complementary Action Alert to Society members, which is posted on its homepage, encouraging them to contact their members of Congress to share their concerns over the impending Medicare cuts. The alert includes a link which makes connecting with congressional offices as simple as a key stroke. If you have not followed through on this urgent alert, please do so today.
