Stop Planned Medicare Cuts

In late November, the House voted to ensure seniors and military families have access to health care by repealing a broken Medicare physician payment formula.

Now this critical bill needs to pass the Senate >>

Without action by both houses of Congress, Medicare will cut payments to physicians by 21 percent in 2010, with more in years to come. These cuts mean a roller coaster of uncertainty for seniors who rely on Medicare -- and for military families, whose TRICARE insurance bases its formulas on Medicare. Ensure the Senate takes action >>

The cuts are scheduled to begin on January 1, so it's critical we take action now to preserve care for Medicare patients. Some doctors have said the cuts will force them to decrease or stop seeing new Medicare patients, which means older people may be forced to travel further for needed medical care, or even go to emergency facilities instead of a doctor's office for basic care!

Demand a long-term solution that works for America's seniors >>
