Georgia Republican Tom Price, chairman of the House Financre Committee, says yet another patch for the sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula for Medicare physician reimbursement is probable likely before the formula can be repealed for good. {Will it ever be?}

“I believe … in March we’ll come up with a patch, likely for 4 to 6 months, and then come forward with full-scale repeal,” most likely tied to the reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which expires Sept. 30.
