Congress Expected to Further Delay SGR Cut to Medicare Physician Fee Schedule
UPDATE: On June 24, 2010 the House and Senate passed legislation to further delay the Medicare cuts until November 30, 2010. More here.
Congress has yet to pass a bill delaying the June 1, 2010 21.2% reduction in physician reimbursement, but most believe it will happen and be effective retroactively.
CMS has said it is anticipating a further delay in Medicare fee schedule cuts, so they have “instructed contractors to hold claims containing services paid under the MPFS for the first 10 business days of June.”
