ABSTRACT
The article presents the July 2009 congressional report of the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) concerning Medicare physician payments. GAO examined the efforts of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in setting fees for sevices furnished together and to avoid excessive payments as requested by the U.S. Congress. Moreover, GAO believes that the U.S. Congress should exempt any resulting savings from federal budget neutrality so that it will go to Medicare.
