Senate tries to protect doctors from Medicare rate cuts

I thought it was about saving money under Obamacare and one of the fixes is letting the medicare cuts happen for doctors? Oh well.

Doctors would see their federal Medicare reimbursement rates hold steady in December, under a bipartisan bill passed Thursday in the Senate.

The $1 billion measure would block a scheduled 23% cut in physician payments. The so-called doc-fix legislation was introduced by Senators Max Baucus, a Montana Democrat, and Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican.
