U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) speaks at a news conference on Capitol Hill in WashingtonBy Susan Cornwell WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said on Tuesday that prospects were good for passage of a permanent fix to Medicare’s flawed doctor-pay formula, a move that would spare physicians from impending pay cuts. The plan’s prospects brightened in the Senate, as well, when Democratic Leader Harry Reid said he would look at the bipartisan House proposal, which would change the way doctors are reimbursed for Medicare costs. It was introduced earlier on Tuesday by Boehner and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. Last week, through a spokesman, Reid expressed opposition to abortion restrictions on community health centers in a draft of the proposal.
