He expressed disappointment, however, that the bill does not reverse cuts to Medicare, including reductions in the payments for physician-administered drugs under Medicare Part B.

“Oncologists are doing everything possible to continue providing care for Medicare patients, but this reduction has forced many in private practice to send patients to hospitals for chemotherapy because they cannot afford to administer these drugs in their office,” Dr. Hudis said in a statement.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
