Doctors' lobby blasts Congress for delayed 'doc fix'

The Hill, June 18, 2010

The American Medical Association continued to blast Congress Thursday for its failure, thus far, to pass legislation preventing a steep pay cut for Medicare doctors. "Congress has broken its promise to America's seniors," Cecil B. Wilson, AMA's newly installed president, said Thursday in a statement. Legislation preventing the 21% cut to Medicare doctors technically expired at the start of the month, but the Obama administration has twice delayed the effective date. The cut is now scheduled to arrive June 18.
