Many physician practices could see significant decreases in Medicare payments for outpatient services in 2019, if the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) moves forward with proposed changes to the Physician Fee Schedule announced in July. Public comment on the proposed rule closed September 10, and CMS officials currently are reviewing responses. The implications of the revised rules would vary for different specialties and individual practices. To prepare, healthcare organizations should evaluate their current share of outpatient visits that would be affected by the changes, and calculate the projected financial impact based on current and anticipated future payment levels.
