Video Web Cast From IAFP Reveals the Consequences of Medicare Physician Payment Cuts
Date:11/28/2007

s.

"Cutting into a margin that is already pretty razor thin as it is makes it very difficult for us," said Matthew T. Johnson, M.D., a family physician in private practice in Park Forest, Ill.

The Illinois Academy of Family Physicians, along with physicians from around the country, is calling on Congress to put a halt to the impending cuts and pass a two-year positive update to Medicare physician reimbursement rates. Congress is expected to take up the issue when they return to Capitol Hill beginning December 4. IAFP has sent the video to the Illinois Congressional delegation with a call for their support.

IAFP encourages the media to use the video news releases, in their entirety or using segments in their own reports to cover this important issue facing our seniors and their doctors in Illinois. The video includes interviews with Illinois family physicians and members of Congress from Illinois. Television stations can request a broadcast quality VNR version of the news release in their desired format by contacting Ginnie Flynn at the Illinois Academy of Family Physicians at gflynn@iafp.com or 630-435-0356 x118.

The Illinois Academy of Family Physicians can also connect you with any of the family physicians in the video to conduct your own interviews. The web site also includes links to Illinois Academy of Family Physicians and American Academy of Family Physicians background information on each topic.

The Illinois Academy of Family Physicians (IAFP) is a professional medical society dedicated to maintaining high standards of family medicine representing over 4,000 family physicians, residents and medical students. IAFP provides members with practice-based support, education, government relations and public relations services.
