CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: 1/11/2008
During the last two weeks, the federal government finally completed the entire release of the 2008 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule. The last provisions were included in the Federal Register on Tuesday, January 3, 2008. The release of the 2008 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule includes some surprises and unusual provisions including payment increases instead of decreases, six month long effective dates, and a delay in the implementation of proposed anti-mark-up provisions. In addition, the legislation that mandated all these changes also includes a provision that affects the Medicare Laboratory Fee Schedule, specifically reimbursement for glycated hemoglobin tests approved for home use.
