The dreaded 21% Medicare Physician Fee Schedule payment cuts were, after several extensions, scheduled to take effect yesterday, April 15, 2010.  The Senate passed last minute legislation, however, delaying the effective date of those cuts until June 1, 2010, and the President quickly signed the legislation into law last night.  Unfortunately this temporary fix leaves physicians on pins and needles for another two months while they wait to see if a permanent fix is in the cards.
