This year’s annual rulemaking for the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule is officially underway following the publication of the proposed rule on July 29, 2019. The calendar year (CY) 2020 proposed rule includes a number of significant proposals that would incorporate several coding changes, implement new statutory requirements related to treatment of substance abuse disorders, and further reduce administrative burden on practitioners. Join Eric Knickrehm for our next Fast Break session where we will discuss these issues and more.

TOPICS INCLUDE:

  • Streamline evaluation and management (E/M) coding and increased payment for E/M visit codes for CY 2021 
  • Enhanced coverage for opioid use disorder treatment as required by the SUPPORT Act 
  • Transitional care management (TCM) payment increases and changes to chronic care management (CCM) coding and billing 
  • Changes to the Open Payments Program
