Healthcare Reform: Biting the Bullet

January 22nd, 2010 | Healthcare Reform

Seems as though Massachusetts has once again fired the Shot Heard 'Round the World – or, at least, 'Round the USA. Cooler minds seems to be prevailing for the moment in Washington and the rush to judgment on "Reform" has slowed to a crawl.

Its a little too early to gauge the ultimate result – that seems to have been the case for many months now – but any draconian risk assessments can be laid to rest for the moment. One thing that may or may not be fixed this year (or ever) is the Sustainable Growth Rate or SGR formula that has dogged physician reimbursement for many years; elimination was part of the Reform deal. As of now, this leaves us where we have been, with growth rates in the 2% to 3% range overall for physicians when calculating cap rates.
