CY 2015 Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule with Comment Period:The CY 2015 PFS proposed rule with comment period was placed on display at the Federal Register on July 3, 2014. In this major proposed rule, we propose RVUs for CY 2015 and other Medicare Part B payment policies to ensure that our payment systems are updated to reflect changes in medical practice and the relative value of services. In addition to policies affecting the calculation of payment rates, this proposed rule proposes potentially misvalued codes, adding procedures to the telehealth list, a process for added transparency in development of payment rates, and provisions relating to implementation of separate payment for chronic care management services.In addition the rule includes proposals and updates related to the ambulance fee schedule regulations, the Physician Compare Website, the Physician Quality Reporting System, the Medicare Shared Savings Program and the Value-Based Payment Modifier and the Physician Feedback Program.
