Graham on Medicare Physician Reimbursement Vote

WASHINGTON -- 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.”
