Medicare Cuts Averted

JAMA. 2007;297(2):146. doi:10.1001/jama.297.2.146-a

Despite threats of cuts, physicians treating Medicare patients will see their reimbursements remain stable for now.

Congress had been considering cuts of 5.1%, to begin this month, but lawmakers reversed course with the passage of a bill (HR 6408 [http://thomas.loc.gov]) in the closing hours of the legislative session on December 9. For 2007, Medicare physician reimbursement will remain the same, and funds could also be set aside to avert cuts in 2008.
