CMS proposes cuts to specialists to fund primary care raises
from Medscape Medical News via TheHeart.org
Medicare would reduce reimbursement for many types of specialists, including cardiologists, to fund sizable raises for primary care physicians in 2013, according to a proposed fee schedule from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. These reductions and raises are apart from the huge pay cut — now put at 27 percent — set for Jan. 1, 2013, that is triggered by Medicare's sustainable growth rate formula and likely to be postponed by Congress.
