Doctors speak out: CMS gets 15,314 comments on proposed physician Medicare changes
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) asked for comments on its proposed physician fee schedule and boy, oh boy, did it get them: 15,314 of them.
As the comment period ended at 5 p.m. yesterday on the government proposal, CMS got pages and pages of reaction, including a strong call from many for the agency to abandon a controversial proposal to consolidate evaluation and management (E/M) billing codes because of fears it will leave physicians who treat high-acuity patients underpaid.
