Graham on Medicare Physician Reimbursement Vote
U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement.
"I have and will continue to support finding a permanent solution to the physician reimbursement formula. However, I truly believe the bill passed by the Senate today does great harm to Medicare Advantage, a program enjoyed by thousands of South Carolina seniors that allows them more choice in their health care.
"I will continue to try to solve this problem in a bipartisan manner that is in the best interests of doctors, seniors, and taxpayers. I do not believe we should have to choose between helping doctors and destroying competition in Medicare."
