Statement by Medicare Rights Center President Joe Baker on
Looming Medicare Physician Cut
New York, NY– Time is running short and our representatives should act now to give people with Medicare the peace of mind that they will be able to still see their physicians on January 1. The bill passed by the Senate ensures continued access to services for Medicare beneficiaries and provides policymakers with the opportunity to come back and not be held hostage to an immediate deadline.
