Medicare Reimbursement Rates

Wyoming – This week, Congress bought itself some extra time to try to solve an ongoing problem with Medicare. It has to do with a possible 21% cut in Medicare reimbursement rates for Wyoming physicians. Dr. Gerrie Gardner is an invasive cardiologist with Cheyenne Cardiology Associates. She's also the Vice President of the Wyoming Medical Society, and she told Wyoming Public Radio's Addie Goss that cutting reimbursement rates would be destructive for the state's physicians and patients.
