Congress stepped in last week to keep the 21% Medicare physician pay cut from hitting doctors. But the issue is far from resolved.

This week’s Policy & Practice Podcast looks at the Medicare physician fee issue, the expansion of Medicaid, and the potential impact of health reform on health care quality and disparities.
