Senate Clears Bill to Permanently Change Medicare Reimbursement Formula

The 92-8 vote was the final stage in months of negotiations over the legislation, which was passed by the House in March. President Barack Obama has said he would sign the measure into law.
Both parties praised the legislation as an example of a rare bipartisan agreement that showed Congress was ready to function after years of governance-by-crisis.
