Medicare Fee Cut Postponed

On November 18, the Senate passed a one-month postponement for the 23% Medicare fee cut that was scheduled to take effect December 1.  With House approval, this bill will delay the 23% pay cut, but January 1, 2011, physicians still face a 25% cut in reimbursements from Medicare.  The American Medical Association is pushing Congress for a one-year delay in hopes the additional time will allow for a better solution to the troubled Medicare payment system.  The House is expected to vote after the Thanksgiving on November 29.
