  • Cuts in Medicare hospital payments may jeopardize patient care
    Hospitals are dissatisfied with the bill recently passed by the Senate to prevent the "fiscal cliff" because they would finance a major part of the delay in a scheduled 26.5% cut in Medicare physician payments. Hospitals are required to shoulder almost half of the estimated $30 billion cost of delaying the scheduled cut, which will jeopardize their ability to care for patients, according to groups representing hospitals.

  • Governors' report supports expanding NPs' scope of practice
    Nurse practitioners and physicians offer comparable quality of care in terms of patient satisfaction, prescribing accuracy, preventive education and time spent with patients, according to a review of the literature by the National Governors Association. "The Role of Nurse Practitioners in Meeting Increasing Demand for Primary Care" report found that expanding nurse practitioners' scope of practice would not lower quality of care and that increased use of NPs could lead to greater access to care.
