FINAL 2023 MEDICARE PHYSICIAN FEE SCHEDULE
On Tuesday, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the final 2023 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) rule, which in addition to major payment implications, includes changes to the Merit-based Incentive Payment System and alternative payment model participation options and requirements for 2023.
Immediately following, MGMA issued a statement expressing disappointment in the final rule and its negative impact to physician payment, urging Congress to take action to avert the cuts and waive the 4% PAYGO sequestration before the end of the year. Join in #MGMAAdvocacy today by sending a letter to your congressional members imploring them to act swiftly to avert these significant payment cuts!
In the coming weeks, we will release a detailed analysis of the final changes to physician payment policies and the Quality Payment Program (QPP). Until then, additional information about the final rule is available in the PFS fact sheet and the QPP fact sheet.
