Senator Harms talks Medicare cuts

Posted: Updated:

With the Fiscal Cliff right around the corner, Nebraskans are left to wonder about how Medicare cuts will affect us.

With the Medicare and Medicaid spending cuts, billions of dollars would be cut to reimburse health care providers.

Hospitals will have the largest amount of cuts, and the Centers for Disease Control  would face almost $500 million dollars in cuts.

Senator John Harms says it's unclear how big of an effect the cuts will have on Nebraska.

Harms says it'll be more clear once they actually visit with the fiscal staff and discuss efficiencies.

"I think that it will definitely have some negative impacts on us but this gives us a chance to take a good hard look at what we're doing, and to see whether or not there are some things we could do without."

Harms says after the first of January there will be a better picture for Nebraska of what to expect.
