The article reports on the forecast that 45% of the general revenue of the Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund would account for total Medicare financing in 2012 and 2013. It says that due to this prediction, U.S. President George W. Bush is required to propose ways to rein in Medicare spending as part of the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003. But healthcare providers fear that the president's administration might use the major overhaul of the Medicare system to reduce budget and payments.
