CMS to Host August 12 Listening Session on the Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule

August 8, 2019
Policy Snapshot

Proposed changes to the CY 2020 Physician Fee Schedule are aimed at reducing burden, recognizing clinicians for the time they spend taking care of patients, removing unnecessary measures, and making it easier for clinicians to be on the path toward value-based care. During this listening session on Monday, August 12, from 1 to 2:30 PM ET, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) experts will cover three provisions from the proposed rule and address your questions so you can formulate your written comments for formal submission:

  • Increasing value of Evaluation and Management (E/M) payments
  • Continuing to improve the Quality Payment Program by streamlining the program’s requirements in order to reduce clinician burden
  • Creating the new Opioid Treatment Program benefit in response to the opioid epidemic
