ABSTRACT
The author offers his insights regarding the planned reduction in Medicare reimbursement rates by 10 percent in the U.S. as of the fiscal year 2008. He cites a survey by the American Medical Association, which suggests that 60 percent of physicians would limit the number of new Medicare patients they treat due to the 2007 cut. According to the author, the budget cuts for the health care sector would greatly affect the quality of medical care provided by doctors.
