CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: 6/6/2006


Editor's Welcome:

Today we will resume our three part series on the differing payment systems used by Medicare to reimburse laboratory and pathology services. As a reminder, Medicare pays for laboratory tests and pathology services using four separate payment systems: the Medicare Laboratory Fee Schedule (LFS); the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS); and the Hospital Inpatient and Outpatient Prospective Payment Systems (IPPS and OPPS). This CodeMap Compliance Briefing will continue our discussion by examining the key features of the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule. As always, please be sure to send us any questions or comments.

Sincerely,

Gregory Root, Esq.
