Where's the Medicare Doctor fix?
Posted in the Dayton Forum
#1 Dec 21, 2012
Congress has routinely delayed needed changes in the Medicare physicians’ reimbursement calculation over the past several years to postpone steep cuts in payments to doctors who treat Medicare. On December 31 delays expire, cuts go into effect, unless Congress and the Administration act positively.
If Congress does not act to enact a year-end deal, current statute requires nearly a 30 percent payment cut in payments to doctors who treat Medicare.
The correction is called the “Doc Fix” because it averts the looming deadline. Nobody wants to see the more than 54 million Americans who would be adversely affected as doctors begin to restrict or drop patients from medical care.
