The ‘Doc Fix’ Just Got Cheaper

National Journal reports, “Buried in the latest Congressional Budget Office numbers was some medicine for a perennial thorn in Congress’s side:  the reviled Medicare payment formula called the “sustainable growth rate.” Congress goes through an annual ritual of passing the so-called “doc fix” to prevent sharp cuts in Medicare’s reimbursement to doctors.

Two proposals for changing the provision are already circulating on Capitol Hill.”
