This wasn't addressed by Obamacare, it was purposely excluded so it would not be included in the CBO cost analysis that would have increased the cost of Obamacare by $200 million.

So the repubs have just added $200 billion to the debt so they can complain about the cost of Obamacare ??

Of course let's not forget this issue was created by a republican controlled congress. They voted these cuts in as a way to trim Medicare then decided every year since NOT to let the cuts go into effect.
Thanks from RNG and Camelot

Did you see the unanimous part? It is a bipartisan issue that should have been addressed in the ACA.
