2009 Medicare fee schedule released


CMS posted its proposed 2009 fee schedule yesterday.  It addresses the anti-markup provision and a new proposed gainsharing exception.  The website is http://www.cms.hhs.gov/physicianfeesched/downloads/CMS-1403-P.pdf

The Stark preamble discussion starts at the pdf page 237-317.  The gainsharing regulation text starts pdf pg 517-527.

In case you were wondering, the proposed fee schedule does include another proposed decrease in provider reimbursement for year 2009.

Have questions? I’m here to help.
