Another shot in the effort to get the feds to increase Iowa’s Medicare reimbursement rate for hospitals, doctors and others who treat the elderly. Attorneys General from Iowa and 21 other states have sent a letter to Congress, urging action on the issue. In the letter, the Attorney General write that while all U-S citizens pay the same taxes to support the Medicare system, but not all citizens are treated equally when it comes to access to health care. Iowa officials say the state’s medical community is docked about a BILLION dollars a year because of a formula which pays Iowa-based professionals and institutions less than those in every other state. Attorneys General in neighboring Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin signed the letter.
