CMS has released its Final Rule for the 2015 Physician Fee schedule (PFS) and the 2015 update to the Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS). The rules finalize Medicare payment policy changes under both payment systems effective January 1, 2015.
Please note that the hyperlinks above are temporary links to the full text of the respective rules, which will only be available until November 13. After the 13th, new electronic links will be established in the Federal Register and we will provide you with the updated links to each rule. Beware, the Physician Fee Schedule final rule is over 1,000 pages.
In the near future, we will provide you with a full analysis of the final rule and how it will impact your practice.
ADVOCATE will continue to provide updates as information becomes available.
