Nurse midwives also will see change in the new year. Until now, certified nurse midwives were paid 65% the rate of physicians for performing the same services by Medicare. Now they will be paid at the same rate.

I have no problem with this.

As soon as nurse midwives and other physician pretenders pay the same malpractice rates as I do. And probably should be higher since they are not as trained and educated as physicians and are more apt to make mistakes because the don't know what they don't know.
