meridianEMR's 'Doc Fix' an Unprecedented Offer During Uncertain Times

LIVINGSTON, N.J., Nov. 10, 2010 /PRNewswire/ --

"Doc Fix" Uncertainty

A concern that is top of mind with all physicians that serve Medicare patients is a looming 21.9% reduction in Medicare reimbursement beginning December 1, 2010. In 1997 Lawmakers changed the way in which physicians are reimbursed under Medicare. As a result, physicians who serve Medicare patients have always feared a significant reduction in their reimbursements. The issue is dealt with each year in what is popularly referred to as the "Doc Fix," which is, in essence, a cancelation of the already-scheduled 21.9%* cuts in Medicare reimbursements to providers. What physicians never know for certain is whether or not this "Doc Fix" will be reinstated.
