Senate Approves Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers

The Senate gave solid approval to H.R. 6331, the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008.  In a statement, NACHC commends Congress not only for addressing the expiring Medicare provisions and the reduction in physician payments, but also for making a number of valuable modifications to the program.  You can also watch an analysis of the legislation by NACHC staffers Craig Kennedy and Susan Jenkins in the NACHC Washington Update.
