radiosurgery we ask your assistance in signing our on-line petition.On behalf of all who
are working hard to repeal Section 634 and stop the decreases to cobalt
radiosurgery we ask your assistance in signing our on-line petition.

Section 634 of that Act decreases Medicare outpatient reimbursement for Cobalt
60 stereotactic radiosurgery (“Gamma Knife®”) for brain disorders by more than
50%. Which is below the cost of providing a procedure. This will reduce access
to an important treatment for Medicare beneficiaries, result in certain
patients and potentially impose cost increases on the Medicare program over
time.

It is imperative that we receive signatures from Everyone who receives this
email as soon as possible.  Click on the link below to see the petition
and sign it.

Please give your First Initial, Last Name,
EMail, City, State and Zip Code.  This is the only information needed
about you to sort by Districts for delivery to the appropriate Senators and
Legislators.  We would appreciate you leaving a comment about who you
are and how long you have worked in radiosurgery.  Everyone who receives
this email should sign the petition.  We need to be a ‘fast squeaky wheel’
with many voices.
