I would venture to say that it probably doesn't matter if people read it or not. There are going to have to be spending cuts implemented somewhere. And that "somewhere", IMO, will probably equate to skimming everywhere.
There will always be a need for physical therapy, they can't do away with it or even 1/2 of it. But, I would think that they would cut alot of the hydrotherapy stuff (and things of that nature) down a bit. I was just talking to my niece last night who works at Wheeling Hospital, and she was telling me some of the stuff that that hospital is going to have to reign in on. Basically, it will not affect or have much of an effect on patient care.
She also said that she's thinking repetitive x-rays and blood tests will probably be reigned in also; along with certain surgeries are going to be moving to out-patient, which is a natural progression anyway, due to technology advancements.
But, this is, as we all know, necessary fat-trimming that needed to take place regardless of healthcare insurance. I don't think there's anything to freak out about.
There are going to be cut backs that are going to be largely unpopular, however, if it actually takes place - which remains to be seen, so it's useless to really talk about it yet. (preventative care - breast exams, pap smears, etc.)
