      President Obama Signs the Medicare and Medicaid Extenders Act of 2010

      The New Law Includes Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) Fix through December
      2011

      This new law prevents a scheduled payment cut for physicians who treat
      Medicare patients from taking effect. CMS is pleased that this law has
      addressed key issues for beneficiaries and providers and we are actively
      engaged in implementing these changes.

      Important News for Medicare Beneficiaries

      CMS is also working to implement several important new provisions for
      Medicare beneficiaries made possible by the Affordable Care Act –
      the health reform law. In 2011:

      Beneficiaries who reach the prescription drug coverage gap, known as the
      donut hole, will receive a 50 percent discount when buying Part
      D-covered brand-name prescription drugs.

      Virtually all Medicare beneficiaries are eligible to receive many free
      preventive care services and a free annual wellness visit.
