Thanks Lucio - good job. It is hard to believe that there is not a concerted effort to destroy community practice. The sequester cuts represents just another nail in the coffin. If the new proposals in the PFS go forward as presented, community oncology will again face significant revenue reductions, forcing more closings and transitions to hospital based programs ( which is probably the intent). This will ultimately result in less access to care and a higher cost.
