Following the Senate’s lead yesterday, the House approved a one-year “doc fix” Thursday afternoon that will prevent a dramatic cut in Medicare physician payments.

The measure was approved in a 409-2 vote today by the House, one day after the Senate approved the $19.2 billion fix by unanimous consent. 

Without the action, Medicare payments to doctors would have been cut 25 percent on January 1st.
