The Daily Quote

"[The Medicare Physician Payment Reform Act] takes additional steps to reform Medicare physician payments. The Administration is pleased that the bill would eliminate the steep payment cut scheduled for 2010. A cut of this magnitude could reduce access to physicians for Medicare beneficiaries throughout the country…[It] is an important step forward in comprehensively reforming the way Medicare pays physicians to provide the very best care to the Nation’s Medicare beneficiaries.”
