Oregon doctors and hospitals are looking forward to increased Medicare reimbursements negotiated by Congressman Peter Defazio before he flipped his health care vote to ‘yes’.  That’s according to Defazio.  Defazio had threatened a ‘no’ vote over the issue of low Medicare reimbursements in Oregon and 16 other states.  He said he had to play hardball with the Obama administration, and ‘get out the steel bats’.  He says Oregon hospitals should see an immediate 1.5% reimbursement increase, and doctors will see 4% more, as part of  a deal that dedicates about 400 million dollars extra to 17 low Medicare-reimbursed states over the next two years.  A full fix is estimated to cost hundreds of billions of dollars.
