CMS Releases Proposed Rule Regarding 2012 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) issued a proposed rule regarding the 2012 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule on July 1, 2011 (“Proposed Rule”). Among the potential changes found in the Proposed Rule is a 50 percent discount to the professional component (“PC”) of subsequent MRI, CT, and ultrasound procedures. This proposed change mirrors the present multiple procedure payment reduction (“MPPR”) policy which currently applies to the technical component (“TC”). The Proposed Rule is open for public comments until August 30, 2011.

The Proposed Rule may be viewed here.
