Lawmakers craft reprieve for medical pay

AP/Yahoo News, December 19, 2007
Under legislation that has passed in the Senate, physicians will get a six-month reprieve from a 10 percent rate cut when treating Medicare patients. Doctors had warned that a cut in reimbursement rates would lead to physicians taking on fewer new Medicare patients, but now they'll receive a 0.5 percent raise when they treat the elderly and disabled.
