What’s Going to Happen When Medicare Changes?

As with most things run by the Government, who knows? Washington is discussing cutting benefits to Medicare recipients. We doctors know that they are going to cut the amount they pay us for services.

One thing that will NOT change, however, at least in my office, is the quality of care I give all my patients — Medicare included. And in return, I only ask one thing. Please understand that I am not in charge of Medicare and do not make the rules. I understand your frustration, but neither I nor my office staff can change the system. Save that anger for your local Congressman or Senator!

I cannot 𠇌hange diagnoses” so that the removal of a benign lesion will be covered and I can’t supply you with enough sample medication because what you need is expensive. The first would be fraud and in the second case, I don’t get enough samples to be able to do that.

The economy and Medicare are currently in trouble. The only way we’re going to get through the changes that are to come is if we realize that we’re in this together. As your doctor, I’m on your side and with enough compassion and honest communication, we can weather any changes to come.
