This video from the Texas Medical Association shows us the Medicare reimbursement issue from a child’s perspective.
Grandma and the Big Bad SGR!
A huge Medicare cut looms for doctors and Medicare patients. Who might that affect? People like grandma – and those who love her, as the child in this video shows. Unless Congress acts, on Jan. 1 doctors who care for Medicare patients face a 27.4-percent pay cut, because of a flawed funding formula called the SGR. Then millions of seniors (like grandma) and people with disabilities — and military families whose insurance is TRICARE — might have trouble finding a doctor´s care.
