RetireSafe Urges All Seniors to Call on Congress to Save Physician Hospitals' Quality Care for Medicare Patients
Date:3/10/2010

WASHINGTON, March 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today RetireSafe, representing 400,000 senior citizen supporters across America, urged seniors nationwide to call on Congress to save high-quality physician hospitals from the restrictive health care reform language now pending in Congress. House and Senate "reform" efforts would ration high-quality physician hospital care to Medicare patients, as a "cost savings."

"The health care reform bill now being considered would deny Medicare beneficiaries access to the best in hospital care and the best prices by limiting the operation and growth of physician hospitals," charged RetireSafe President Thair Phillips. "For seniors seeking the finest in orthopedic or cardiac care, physician hospitals are an obvious first choice. Precious Medicare dollars can be saved by expanding the use of physician hospitals." He went on to urge every senior to call Congress.

"We need more of these outstanding facilities to serve the growing millions of older Americans on Medicare," Phillips emphasized. "Health care reform as now written would deny our seniors access to new physician hospitals, and put the ones we now have out of business. If this misguided legislation is ever enacted, the limitation language on physician hospitals must be changed before Medicare patients suffer needlessly."
