ABSTRACT
The article reports that physician groups are aggressively lobbying U.S. Congress to stop a controversial 10% cut in Medicare reimbursements, which doctors on Long Island argue would force some to stop taking the government-sponsored health plan. Doctors called the cuts unacceptable and are hoping that a fix, albeit temporary, could keep the lower payments from ever being implemented. Information about the possible impact of the cuts on patients' care is discussed.
