Reid: Correcting problem with Medicare and TRICARE doctor payments is too important to be politicized

Date:

SEN. HARRY REID NEWS RELEASE:

harryreid1-150x150-7672922-4310972Washington, D.C.–Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today after Republicans voted to block consideration of legislation to fix payments to Medicare and TRICARE doctors:

“It is unfortunate that Republicans have again chosen to put politics before the needs of the American people. The Medicare Physician Fairness Act would help ensure that seniors and military families get the care they need by fairly compensating Medicare and TRICARE doctors.

“Despite today’s outcome, I am determined to continue working to address the current flawed payment system. I remain hopeful we can pass a multi-year fix after health insurance reform. Our seniors and military families and their doctors deserve no less.”
