Modern Healthcare

In a speech to the Association of American Medical Colleges, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius pushed for an extension to the so-called doc fix to stop an expected 23% cut to Medicare payments for physicians.

“On Thursday, I attended a Cabinet meeting where the president stressed that preventing these potentially disastrous cuts must be one of our top priorities,” Sebelius said, according to written remarks of her speech.
