It offset the $25 billion cost of freezing doctors’ pay rates through a series of small health program cuts. Those cuts have the hospitals grumbling. But those close to the process say the problem will only get worse next year if Congress and the president succeed in squeezing excess money out of Medicare in an entitlement reform deal.
