According to, The U.S. Senate will not act on legislation to fix the 21% pay cut under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule before it goes into effect on April 1.  Although the House passed legislation earlier this week which would permanently fix the Sustainable Growth Rate formula which causes this pay cut panic every year, Senator Mitch McConnell has indicated that the Senate intends to take the matter up  when it returns from break after April 13, 2015.
