Many Medicare recipients are justifiably nervous over the state of their coverage. There has been a lot of talk about doctors refusing to cover Medicare patients if they receive a pay cut. While Congress works to avoid the reduction in payment, the Bush administration has announced it will temporarily freeze the Medicare cuts to buy Congress some more time to come up with a fix.
Meanwhile, the state of health care for all Americans is still troubling. According to the New York Times, 20 percent of Americans either delayed or didn’t make visits to the doctor to deal with health problems last year. These numbers show a troubling rise in the amount of Americans who aren’t properly dealing with health problems and shed some light on just how bad things are getting in health care. Have you skipped a doctor’s visit or put off getting a health problem checked out? Let us know, comment below.
