gun to my head, i would bet that the 13 month expansion is as such in order to allow physicians to plan for the fiscal year.

what drives me crazy about this issue is that these cuts would only save about $12 billion a year while about 2/3 of physicians would stop taking new medicare patients. this would be an extremely negative outcome for beneficiaries in an aging population.
