WASHINGTON — House Republicans have no plans to move a stand-alone bill to reverse a scheduled 27 percent cut in Medicare physician fees, a spokesman for Speaker John Boehner said.
Both the House and Senate have opted to address Medicare payments to doctors as part of the debate over extending a payroll-tax cut set to expire on Jan. 1.
Michael Steel, a spokesman for Boehner, said in an email today he is unaware of any plans to address physician fees separately.
