Congress Delays Medicare Pay Cut

Posted By Dr. Ari Weitzner On April 12, 2010 @ 6:42 pm In Practice Tips | 4 Comments

Hurray! Congress has voted to schedule a vote later this week to delay the 20% fee cut til May 1. They are also drafting legislation to ‘fix” this annual problem of reversing Medicare fee cuts, by freezing the fees for five years. Great idea, guys! Keep up the good work! I am seriously considering dropping Medicare, or, charging a mandatory $40 refraction fee for every visit. Otherwise, I really don’t see how my practice can be profitable with these fees.
