Proposed bill could mean tax break for doctors
Kansas City Star, December 29, 2008

The law would be used as an incentive for them to see more Medicaid recipients. Legislators say the move would make up some of the gap between how much the taxpayer-funded program reimburses for healthcare and the actual costs of that care.
