On July 1, a 10.6% cut to Medicare doctor payments is scheduled to go into effect, followed six months later by another 5% cut. These cuts not only affect the people on Medicare, they also affect active and retired military personnel and their families, since rates for TRICARE (the military insurance) are based on those for Medicare. Service members are already having a hard time finding doctors who accept TRICARE, and these cuts will make it even harder!

Sign the petition to let Congress know they need to make sure our veterans and their families get the healthcare they deserve!
