JUNEAU - House Democrats are pushing a plan they hope will keep Medicare patients from falling through the cracks.
The bill introduced Wednesday would create a grant fund aimed at helping build and expand the nonprofit community health clinics that serve Medicare patients.
It's directed at what some fear is the driving away of some patients by private practice physicians who've received chronically low levels of reimbursement from Medicare for such things as routine office visits.
