Video Explains Impact of Medicare’s Faulty Physician Payment Formula

Update: The House Energy and Commerce Committee unanimously approved the legislation. It heads to the full chamber next. Read more here.

Last week we brought you news that U.S. representatives are pushing legislation to eliminate the faulty formula used to pay physicians who care for Medicare patients. For more than a decade, the flawed formula has forced doctors out of the program, making it difficult for some Medicare patients to find a physician. Earlier this year, PBS’s Newshour talked to Texas physicians, Medicare patients, and Texas Medical Association Executive Vice President Lou Goodman, PhD, about this issue. Watch the video.
