Physicians Foundation Warns of Potential Impact From New Medicare Cuts Effective Today
Date:3/1/2010

43 million Americans currently receive Medicare coverage.  In their national survey, The Physicians Foundation found that nearly half of all primary care doctors nationwide were planning to either reduce the number of patients they saw or stop practicing entirely.  The Physicians Foundation believes that the new Medicare cuts will only exacerbate problems of access and doctor shortages across the country.  

"Physicians are frustrated because their patients are frustrated," continued Goodman.  "At a time when our country is debating massive changes to our health care system, it's very distressing that Congress would fail to act on behalf of the millions of patients who depend on Medicare.  For years we've known just how concerned doctors were over these potential cuts -- now, they're a reality."

The Physicians Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that seeks to advance the work of practicing physicians and to improve the quality of healthcare for all Americans. The Foundation is unique in its commitment to working with physicians nationwide to create a more efficient and equitable healthcare system. It pursues its mission through a variety of activities including grantmaking, research and policy studies. Since 2005, The Foundation has awarded numerous multi-year grants.  Additional information about The Physicians Foundation is available online at
