NOTE: “Medicare payment rates under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) are set according to statutory criteria. The following 2013 MPFS payment rates are reflective of the 2013
Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule that was put on display at the Office of the Federal Register on November 1, 2012, and are based on current law which provides a negative update for 2013.
However, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will quickly work to update MPFS payment rates in the event Congress passes legislation to prevent the negative update from going into effect on January 1, 2013. Please be on the alert for more information about the 2013 physician update as it becomes available.”
