The Medicare debate and the whim of Congress is sending a message that Medicare is or will be very unreliable. Physicians who depend on Medicare by as much as 31% of income to cover expenses will (or are currently) questioning the wisdom of being providers of Medicare. Although the promise of a permanent “doc fix” is in the air, it has also been circulated that Medicare funding will be depleted by 2017. (and this was before 54billion dollars was removed from Medicare to fund other programs).
Where will this leave Seniors? Where will this leave the rest of us?
