Dr. Gary C. Richter, M.D., talks with medicaid patient Johnnie Mae McClendon Friday July 1, 2011 about a procedure in his office in Atlanta, Ga.

Nathan Deal had originally proposed a 1 percent cut to health care providers, excluding hospitals, to take effect on the July 1 start of the fiscal year.(AP Photo/Joey Ivansco) less
