Technically, the 21.2 percent cut in Medicare fees is in effect as of April 1, 2010 but CMS has instructed its contractors to hold claims for the first 10 business days of April or until April 14, 2010.

As you know, Congress adjourned for its two-week spring recess without taking action to stop the reductions. We do know that Senate plans to hold a cloture vote after the recess which, if supported by 60 Senators, will allow a vote to occur on the legislation. That vote could occur as early as April 12.

New Jersey Physicians -- Legislative Call to Action

ACT NOW to stop Wrongful Death Expansion

Issue: The New Jersey Legislature continues to threaten consideration of bills that would allow unlimited emotional damages in cases of wrongful death. These bills, S-763/A-1158, passed the Legislature in 2008 by one vote in each chamber, only to be pocket vetoed by Governor Corzine. There is a high risk that the bills are passed again during this “lame duck” session.
