CMS is inviting stakeholders to participate an August 22, 2019 listening session on the CY 2019 proposed Medicare physician fee schedule rule. The call will focus on three aspects of the proposed rule:
- Streamlining Evaluation and Management (E/M) payment policies
- Advancing virtual care
- Changes to the Quality Payment Program intended to reduce clinician burden, focus on outcomes, and promote interoperability
During the call, CMS experts will answer “clarifying questions” regarding these provisions to help stakeholders develop their formal comments.
