Pity for the docs? Not exactly

Posted By on Thu, Dec 10, 2009 at 7:00 AM

John Brummett examines the complaint from richly paid medical specialists that efforts at Medicare cost-cutting could affect patient care. No, he concludes, the changes will mostly affect specialist pay as Medicare pushes more attention to the primary care physicians where future expensive problems can sometimes be avoided.

I'm not going to lose any tears on a $50,000 loss -- if that be a true projection -- on the part of specialists making a million bucks a year. Save the violins for the people who MADE $25,000 a year last year who took pay cuts, lost health insurance or lost their entire livelihood.
