Description

The midyear release of the Proposed Rule for the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule outlines’ changes it is recommending for the following year and beyond. This is for services that are connected with the Physician Fee Schedule for Medicare (the 30+ column excel spreadsheet of CPT codes that lists RVU’s). In the late fall, after soliciting and considering comments from shareholders, a final rule is released. That happened in early November. This lecture is based on the official final rule. Additional information is gleaned from the many pages of comments from shareholders and the subsequent discussion by CMS/Medicare in addressing the questions. If you have questions regarding a particular code or series of codes, check out

Implementation of most changes in presented the Final Rule is January 1 of the upcoming year, in this case, 2022.  Sometimes the implementation is delayed or is over a period of time. One needs to pay attention to the date the new or changed rule was enacted.
