Mich. House narrowly approves 3% tax on doctors

LANSING, Oct. 7, 2009 (AP): The Democratic-led Michigan House has voted to put a 3 percent tax on doctors' gross receipts to raise more federal matching money for state-run health care programs.

The House voted 56-52 mostly along party lines Tuesday to send the proposal to the Republican-led Senate.

Doctors who see Medicaid patients would benefit from higher reimbursement rates generated by the tax. Doctors who treat few or no Medicaid patients would lose out.

Advocates say the doctors' tax would be similar to taxes already paid by hospitals and nursing homes. Michigan's main trade group for physicians says doctors are unfairly being singled out.
