NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- With a 21% cut to Medicare reimbursement rates set to take effect Monday, the nation's largest physician organization has informed its members about their options -- which include shutting off practices to new Medicare patients.

"To our physicians, we are providing information on their Medicare participation options, including how to remove themselves from the Medicare program," said James Rohack, president of the American Medical Association, whose more than 250,000 members include doctors, medical students and faculty members.

Some 43 million Americans receive Medicare coverage.

Detroit Mayor Bing emphasizes need to shrink cityMayor says it's not 'an easy conversation,' but people, services must be focused to save city

 

Detroit --Mayor Dave Bing said Wednesday he "absolutely" intends to relocate residents from desolate neighborhoods and is bracing for inevitable legal challenges when he unveils his downsizing plan.

In his strongest statements about shrinking the city since taking office, Bing told WJR-760 AM the city is using internal and external data to decide "winners and losers." The city plans to save some neighborhoods and encourage residents to move from others, he said.

"If we don't do it, you know this whole city is going to go down. I'm hopeful people will understand that," Bing said. "If we can incentivize some of those folks that are in those desolate areas, they can get a better situation."

Al, you're distracting from the "LASER-LIKE" focus the President and Congress has on jobs, jobs, jobs.

The weekly initial jobless claims number came in at 496,000 -- that's like 9 or 10 domed stadiums full of the newly unemployed for those of you scoring at home :} Yah, me too.

And Al, just between you and me Sempai, I'm thinking its time to re-enter the market for glittery stuff(?).

$1050 as a base -- certainly not over $1100 to jump back in.

Well Alstry,

 Nice to see you still at it. Thanks dude. I've been exploring the Net and I've found that folks who post what you post tend to be banned in other forums. It is a fool's paradise, isn't it? :-D
