Congress aims to ease doctor shortage
Hartford Courant, April 14, 2008
Congress is under pressure to remedy the national doctor shortage that could worsen on July 1, when physicians who treat Medicare patients get a 10 percent pay cut. Lawmakers want to stop the upcoming pay cut, and Congress is considering the Physician Shortage Elimination Act. The Act would spend millions to provide more scholarships for medical students and expand residency training programs throughout the country.
