Congress get to work
Time is running out for the Congress to take action to avoid a 23 to 25 percent cut in payments to doctors and other providers who care for Medicare patients. This cut is based on a formula adopted in 1997 which have proven to be unfair to those providing Medicare services.
A permanent fix is needed, however, if this can’t be accomplished in the short time available before December 31 a temporary fix is a must.
750,000 Kentuckians depend on Medicare. Many of us risk losing our doctors if this cut is allowed to take effect. It is not fair to leave us without the assurance of uninterrupted medical care.
Call your members of Congress and ask them to correct this injustice.
