Doctors plead for 10% Medicare bonus in stimulus package

Wall Street Journal (blog), December 18, 2008
American College of Physicians President Jeffrey Harris has sent a letter to HHS nominee Tom Daschle asking that the Obama administration's economic-stimulus package include a 10% pay bonus for all services provided by primary care docs under Medicare for a period of 18 months. The letter also requests that primary care practices, especially small ones, get a piece of the funding pie for health information technology that Obama has pledged to spend billions of dollars on.
