More than one in 10 family physicians may close their offices if Medicare slashes payments next year, according to an online survey of American Academy of Family Physicians members who have an ownership stake in their medical practices.

The survey asked family physicians in September about the impact of a pending 23% Medicare pay cut that was scheduled to take effect December 1, but which was subsequently delayed until January 1 by Congress.
