The news is full of debates about the financial crisis in the United States. Government shutdowns have been threatened, programs are at risk for being cut, and one of the biggest issues, healthcare, cannot be decided on. Decisions being made are affecting people – not only the average individual, regardless of whether or not they carry insurance – but also medical providers. Physicians, pharmaceutical companies, and hospitals are surely feeling the pinch with Medicaid in jeopardy and FSA’s (Flexible Spending Accounts) having new limitations and other potential heathcare cuts. With less insurance money coming in, medical practices are looking to cut costs.
