ABSTRACT
The article discusses the potential impact on the U.S. healthcare system if one of the proposed Medicare physician payment cuts actually passes. A survey conducted by the Medical Group Management Association revealed that 46% of physicians has threatened to start limiting patients when faced with a 10.6% reduction. Even if the figures are not as high, seniors' access to care will drop.
