2007 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule

December 11, 2006 -- Late in the evening on Saturday, December 9, the U.S. Senate passed the "Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006" (H.R. 6111) by a vote of 79-9 with 12 not voting.  The legislation, passed by the House on December 8 contains a fix of the 2007 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, among other Medicare items.  The bill, sponsored by current House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Bill Thomas (R-CA), tied medicare items to another legislative vehicle not related to health care.  The next step for this bill is forwarding to the President's desk where it is expected to be signed into law.
