President Obama signed the Temporary  Payroll Tax Cut Continuation Act of 2011 into law on December 23rd .  Among other things, the legislation  will avert the imposition of the 27.4% reduction in the Medicare physician fee schedule that was due to go into effect on January 1, 2012.  The reprieve is only temporary, however.  The legislation postpones the imposition of the fee schedule reduction only until February 29, 2012.  Physicians will need to continue to monitor the situation and its potential impact on their practice revenues.
