Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is hosting a national call about a proposal to apply a value-based modifier to physicians’ Medicare payment rates. Register on the CMS Upcoming National Provider Calls web page for this call on August 1, 2012, at 11:30 am PST. Advance registration is strongly encouraged to secure a space.
Officials will discuss the proposed implementation of a provision in the Affordable Care Act that will apply a value-based modifier to physicians’ Medicare payment rates. The program is being phased in over three years, beginning in 2015, and will result in payment increases for some physicians and reductions for others. You can learn more about CMS’s proposed implementation of the value-based modifier on pages 559-622 of the proposed 2013 physician fee schedule.
A Q&A session will follow the presentation, and all registrants will receive a link to the slide presentation on the day of the call.
