CMS Physician Final Rules for 2024 : Find out What CMS has Finalized from the Proposed Rules

From: Feb 23, 2024 - To: Dec 31, 2024

Every summer, CMS publishes its proposed new physician payment and coding change guidelines for the coming year. November 1, 2023, CMS will publish its final rule confirming or changing issues from the proposed rules. In some circumstances, provider comments can influence CMS to deviate from their original proposed guidelines. It is very important for providers and staff to know what items in the proposed rule will move forward to 2023 and to know what CMS has decided not to move forward on in 2024. The proposed rule issues that were not implemented for 2023 may identify issues still being considered for 2024. This year, there are significant changes to EM services, splits/shared care, remote patient monitoring (RPM), complex chronic care management (CCM), etc., that will require a complete change in the way services are coded outside of the office setting.
