President Obama signs legislation to delay Medicare cuts until end of 2012

President Obama signed legislation (HR 3630) that delays scheduled cuts to Medicare physician reimbursement rates, extends the payroll tax cut and continues unemployment benefits. The $143 billion package delays the Medicare rate cut, which would have been a 27%, until the end of 2012. When the “doc fix” expires in December, physicians will face about a 32% reduction in Medicare payments.
