Congress Extends 0% Update to Medicare Physician Fee Schedule

The Continuing Extension Act of 2010 was signed into law on April 15. This law reinstates the March 31 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (Fee Schedule) rates for physicians, postponing, yet again, the anticipated-21.3% cut. The zero percent (0%) update to the Fee Schedule has been extended to May 31 will apply retroactively to claims that have been held since April 1.
