Poll: Will You Opt-Out of Medicare if the 27% Reimbursement Cut Goes Through?

Nov 28, 2012

ObGyns are among the least likely physicians to accept new Medicare patients, and more physicians will likely begin refusing Medicare patients if the 27% cut in Medicare reimbursement goes through in 2013. What will you do?

ObGyns are among the least likely physicians to accept new Medicare patients, according to a Jackson Healthcare survey of more than 2,000 MDs, and a survey done by the Texas Medical Association, one of the few state associations to monitor Medicare opt-outs, the percentage of Texas physicians accepting Medicare patients dropped from 78 percent in 2000, to 58 percent in 2012.

If the 27% cut in Medicare reimbursement is enacted as scheduled in 2013, more physicians will likely begin refusing Medicare patients.
