Despite the meeting not going well, Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) is still expected to unveil a third iteration of the extenders bill later on Wednesday.
It is expected to include a "doc fix," which refers to delaying a Medicare payment cut to physicians, with modifications to its pension relief offset to accommodate multi-employers. The Senate passed a similar measure on Friday.
The legislation is also expected to scale back an extension to Federal Medical Assistance Percentages (FMAP), from $24 billion to roughly $14 billion, which will likely be at least partially offset with unused stimulus funds.
The bill is also expected to include technical corrections that will add approximately $2 billion in offsets.
Several sources told The Hill that this bill could be the last shot Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will have to pass extenders.
