The New York Times writer Robert Pear has written an article entitled, "Doctors press Senate to Undo Medicare Cuts."
It begs the question...
Can you really reduce payments to your doctor by 10% and still expect the same quality of care?
I believe you can.
But no one should be surprised when physicians will stop accepting medicare as a form of payment and ask nicely for cash (it's already happening folks).
Regardless of your thoughts on this particular situation, it makes for a very interesting read. You get a sense of the bedlam occurring in Washington regarding healthcare policy.
Doctors, insurance agents, congressmen (who are always up for reelection) and senators all at each others throats over legislation which decides where YOUR tax dollars should go.
To your doctor or to insurance companies? That is the question...
