Outreach and Education

NOTICE: As announced in the CY 2024 Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) Final Rule, effective January 1, 2024, CMS is pausing efforts to implement the AUC program for reevaluation and rescinding the AUC regulations at 42 CFR 414.94. CMS has not specified a timeframe within which implementation efforts will recommence. See pages 79256-79265 of the final rule.

Effective January 1, 2024, providers and suppliers should no longer include AUC consultation information on Medicare FFS claims. However, claims containing AUC related codes with dates of service in 2023 and 2024 will continue to process. Additionally, CMS will no longer qualify PLEs or CDSMs and will remove this information from the AUC website. The claims processing instructions and guidance for the educational and operations testing period will also be removed.
