Latest Cancer Clinic Closure in Selma, Alabama
Date:3/17/2010

across 24 states. Some of these have also been sold to hospitals or large healthcare organizations due to financial pressures brought on by the reimbursement cuts. Rural practices and those with higher proportions of Medicare and Medicaid patients are particularly hard hit.

Medicare has already severely cut payments for cancer care — over 25% since 2004 –- which has impacted doctors' ability to treat patients. The cuts for cancer drugs are 5% this year and will continue each year through 2013, when they will be cut by close to 20%. Payment cuts are also being made to imaging tests — such as PET and CT scans — and there will be a 21% payment cut for all physicians' services as of October 2010 if Congress does not act to stop it.

"Medicare patients like me will all have to go to hospitals for our cancer care," commented Taylor Bohnyak, a lymphoma patient in North Brunswick, NJ. "The hospitals will have to treat us, along with their own patients, as well as younger cancer patients. If my lymphoma comes back, I fear that I will not be able to get treated in time or quickly enough to hold my aggressive form of cancer at bay."
