Doc Fix' Costs Rise to $25B

If Medicare is cut at the beginning of 2013, doctors will see their Medicare payments drop 26.5%. But if the cut is delayed and doctors’ payments are frozen in place, the cost called the “doc fix”, would balloon to $25 billion according to the Congressional Budget Office. It had previously been estimated at $18.5 billion.
