Continuing Saga of the Sustainable Growth Rate

The latest version of legislation to solve the Sustainable Growth Rate (“SGR”) has now been introduced in the House.  That version couples the resolution of the SGR problem with delaying the individual mandate under the Affordable Care Act.  While it is predicted that this legislation will pass the House, it is highly doubtful that this legislation will pass the Senate and even if it passes the Senate, it is highly questionable that it will be signed by the President.

As we are all aware, a resolution of the SGR needs to come about prior to March 31, 2014 and today is Friday, March 7th.

At the present time, this is the only pending legislation that appears to have a funding source.
