Help Senator Nelson Stop Looming Healthcare Cuts for Elders in Florida

You probably think it's déjà vu all over again when it comes to health reform.

As a member of the Patients' Action Network, you know that we've always been concerned about the potential of doctors no longer seeing new Medicare patients, due to the looming 20 percent physician payment cuts that are on the horizon. Coupled with Baby Boomers about to enter into the Medicare system, and a shortage of primary care physicians to treat them, these fears may well become reality on Jan. 1, 2010.

Watch Dr. Madelyn Butler from Tampa discuss the reality of what these cuts mean for Florida patients.

But Senator Bill Nelson can help stop these Medicare cuts and protect Florida patients' access to care. Tell him to be a champion for both patients and their doctors.
