Modern Healthcare

Physician associations denounced Congress for failing to find a permanent solution to Medicare’s sustainable growth-rate formula after lawmakers reached a tentative agreement that would force them to revisit the issue at the end of the year.

The deal would avert a 27.4% Medicare payment cut to physicians after Feb. 29 and extend current payment rates through the end of 2012, according to a GOP aide.
