Release by CMS caps months of debate by stakeholders
Long awaited and hotly debated, the 2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) and Quality Payment Program (QPP) final rules have been on the minds of healthcare shareholders since late July, when the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released proposed rules for both. Tucked into the MPFS were the controversial revisions to the regulations governing evaluation and management (E&M) services. Today, CMS released both.
