>>Doc-Fix Passes

WASHINGTON — The House gave final approval on Thursday to a bill that would avert a 25 percent cut in Medicare payments to doctors by freezing reimbursement rates at current levels until the end of next year.

The bill goes now to President Obama, who hailed the action by Congress and promised to sign the legislation.

The House vote was 409 to 2. The Senate approved the measure by unanimous consent on Wednesday.
