Play Ball…

The Senate will take up the doc fix "patch" today.

The Senate will take up the doc fix “patch” today.

Happy Opening Day, ProviderNation.

The Senate is scheduled to take up the “patch” to the doc fix today around 5:30 p.m. Eastern time. You’ve already heard that House leaders pulled a bit of their own Fake Out last week with an argument-free voice vote. The House text merely extends the current law (including therapy cap exceptions) until next year.

Lobbying-American types doubt that the Senate will scuff up the bill, because this thing has been in extra innings since 2003. So look for Lobbying-American types to make a call to the pen. Because they could use a little relief.

Play ball, indeed.
