White House again postpones doc cuts under Medicare

The Hill, June 15, 2010
Doctors treating Medicare patients will not be hit with a steep pay cut June 15, as previously scheduled, the Obama administration announced. Instead, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is holding claims until June 18, anticipating that Congress will intervene this week. The move is the latest in a string of efforts to prevent Medicare doctors from receiving a 21% pay cut, which technically went into effect June 1. CMS had initially delayed the cut until June 15.
