Doctors divided on how new healthcare law will affect them

Washington Post, March 29, 2010

Physicians' reactions to President Obama's healthcare legislation are complicated and varied, and depend largely on the type of medicine they practice, the Washington Post reports. Primary-care physicians will "absolutely" benefit from the bill, said Lori Heim, president of the American Academy of Family Physicians. She said she is particularly looking forward to a 10% Medicare bonus for primary-care physicians for the next five years. Some radiologists, however, are concerned about Medicare cuts to medical imaging.
