Physicians will see a 21 percent across-the-board cut in their Medicare payments due to Congress’s failure to pass another short-term fix before the current fix expires on March 1. However, given the near certainty of congressional action on this issue, Medicare has instructed its contractors to hold claims for two weeks, thereby buying Congress more time to pass a short-term fix.
