Revised Medicare Fee Schedule Has Been Posted

1/4/2013
 
On January 4, the revised 2013 Medicare fee schedule was posted on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services website. This file contains changes related to the sustainable growth rate (SGR) as defined in the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. It will be used by Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) to update payment rates for 2013 Medicare claims.
 
All previously published MAC payment rates could list significantly lower dollar amounts. This is because the proposed SGR rate for 2013 was less than the payment rates agreed to in the American Taxpayer Relief Act.
  
It is important that members visit their MAC website to review updated reimbursement values.
