Obama ready to sign bipartisan fix for Medicare doctor payments

By Susan Cornwell WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama said on Wednesday he was ready to sign bipartisan legislation to change the formula for reimbursing Medicare physicians, while the U.S. Senate’s top Democrat appeared open to allowing a vote on the measure. Both developments signified growing support for a bipartisan effort to address a persistent problem and make small adjustments in Medicare costs. “Congress is working to fix the Medicare physician payment system. I’ve got my pen ready to sign a good, bipartisan bill,” Obama, a Democrat, said at the White House, adding that this would be “really exciting.” The House of Representatives is expected to vote on Thursday on the proposal negotiated by Republican Speaker John Boehner and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.
