It Dices, It Slices, and Juliennes: Medicare pay for doctors to be cut 21%

Doctors who treat Medicare patients will see their pay cut by 21.3 percent after Congress failed to approve a fix to the government insurance program for the elderly and disabled. The Senate on Friday passed legislation that aims to delay the pay cuts until the end of November, but the House of Representatives will not vote on the payment fix until next week. Lawmakers did not act before the agency that oversees Medicare ordered Friday that claims submitted this month by doctors, nurse practitioners, therapists and others be paid at the lower rate.

Great news for my niece/nephew's - Gov't Medicare since 1964 has been a fonzi scheme that Ike thru Obama has supported in the Medical Industrial Complex.
