Following up on Tuesday’s blog is a link to a Modern Healthcare article (which you may need a user name/password for) regarding the issue of tying “quality” to physician reimbursement.

In addition, in light of the ObamaCare rollout fiasco, both the failure to have people enroll as well as the insurance cancellations, it appears that the attention in Congress and the media are now focused on resolving the issues arising from this fiasco.  It is not at all clear whether or not there will be appropriate attention paid and action taken in regard to the Sustainable Growth Rate issue, which needs to be resolved by December 31st, otherwise physicians will sustain a substantial reduction in payments for care rendered to Medicare beneficiaries.

As we have in other years, we will keep you informed as to significant proposed solutions in the countdown to December 31st, and whether or not and how this issue is resolved.
