This week, CMS released two proposed rules for the 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and the Hospital Outpatient Department and ASC. The GI societies will provide feedback to CMS on these rules. The agency will release the final rules before the end of 2020. Implementation begins in January.
Physician payments under MPFS will likely be cut across most specialties as the conversion factor which determine payment rates is expected to decrease to meet budge neutrality. CMS is looking for new pathways in the HOPD/ASC rule to increase the number of procedures that can be performed in an ASC.
To find out more about how provisions in these rules will impact GI read the full analysis and summary.
Stay tuned for more information on how you can support advocacy efforts.
