Senate bans AMA from Medicare talks

KaiserNetwork.org, February 21, 2008
The Senate Finance Committee has banned the American Medical Association from discussions about an upcoming Medicare package that would stop a 10 percent cut to physician fees. "AMA lost the trust" of Finance Committee Chair Max Baucus "when it broke a confidentiality agreement about Medicare talks last year and informed state affiliates," according to CongressDaily. The cuts are scheduled to go into effect on July 1.
