CMS Releases 2020 Proposed Physician Fee Schedule Rule

Published Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Yesterday the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released their proposed Calendar Year 2020 Physician Fee Schedule, aiming to reduce administrative burden on physicians, and make it easier for patients to access value-based care.  Among the changes, CMS has proposed steps to help clinicians better manage chronically ill patients as they transition from the hospital to the home through care management services.  CMS is also proposing to add three new codes for a bundled episode of care for treatment of opioid use disorder, among other changes.  

Comments on the proposal are due Sept. 27, 2019.
