In a unanimous consent vote Dec. 8, the U.S. Senate passed a measure halting the impending Medicare physician payment cut of almost 25 percent. The bill blocks reimbursement reductions caused by the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula through 2011, allowing time to develop a permanent replacement to the SGR. The U.S. House of Representatives must still pass the measure before the Jan. 1 effective date for the 25 percent cut.
