"Physicians are working hard to improve quality of care for patients, but this short-sighted government payment policy makes it difficult to purchase new technologies used to help improve care," said Dr. Wilson. "Congress needs to take a long, hard look at how Medicare cuts affect seniors who rely on the program for health care, and
