Medicare Fee Schedule Freeze for 31 Days
Today the Senate unanimously approved a 31-day freeze of the sustainable growth rate formula. This freeze prevents the 23% reduction in physician reimbursement from becoming effective on December 1, 2010. The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on the matter in approximately one week. While this is good news, it is only a temporary fix; physicians still face a 25% reduction in reimbursement on January 1, 2011 unless Congress acts.
