Senate Unanimously Passes “Doc Fix”

On June 19, 2010, the Senate unanimously passed legislation, known as the “doc fix”, sparing doctors a 21% cut in Medicare payments until November 30, 2010. However, moments after the Senate acted, Medicare announced it would begin processing claims it has already received for June at the lower rate, which will force medical providers who bill under Medicare’s physician fee schedule to resubmit their claims if they want to be made whole.
