Grandma and the Big Bad SGR!
A huge Medicare cut looms for doctors and Medicare patients. Who might that affect? People like grandma - and those who love her, as the child in this video shows.
Unless Congress acts, on Jan. 1 doctors who care for Medicare patients face a 27.4-percent pay cut, because of a flawed funding formula called the SGR. Then millions of seniors (like grandma) and people with disabilities -- and military families whose insurance is TRICARE -- might have trouble finding a doctor's care.
