APHA Applauds Congressional Override of Medicare Veto
Date:7/16/2008

WASHINGTON, July 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Public Health Association (APHA) applauds the House and Senate for overriding the president's veto of a Medicare bill that would improve access to preventive services and strengthen low-income protections against rising Medicare costs. The bill would also cancel a scheduled 10.6 percent pay cut to doctors who treat patients in the Medicare program.

"This bill is a victory for our nation's seniors and individuals with disabilities," said Georges C. Benjamin, MD, FACP, FACEP (E), executive director of APHA. "It provides those enrolled in the Medicare program with improved and affordable preventive and mental health benefits and also ensures they have access to the providers they need."
