U.S. House backs one-year delay to doctor pay cuts under Medicare

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. House of Representatives approved legislation on Thursday to avert looming pay cuts for doctors under the government’s Medicare health insurance program for older Americans and the disabled.

The measure to postpone the cuts was approved in a voice vote after an earlier delay signaled potential trouble mustering support for the bill, which halts the pay cuts for one year. Senate Democratic leaders hoped to bring the bill up for a vote in that chamber later on Thursday, a Senate Democratic aide said.
