Medicare Physician Rate Cut Delayed for One Year

Last week President Obama signed legislation that will delay Medicare payment cuts for one more year.  The reduction in pay, 25 percent, had been scheduled to begin on January 1, 2011.  The American Medical Association strongly advocated for the delay that is longer than the previous five delays over the past year.  Over the upcoming year, Congress will work to develop a long-term solution to the Medicare physician payment problem.
