Part of the Senate's deal on the 'Fiscal Cliff' includes preventing a 27 percent cut in Medicare payments to doctors.
That's good news for over 47 million Americans who rely on the federal system of health insurance,a number of those people living right here in our area.
It will cost the country 31 billion dollars to keep Medicare the same.
At this time, the deal must still go to the House for review.
