Will you fight for higher reimbursements?
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has released its proposed 2010 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and is accepting comments until August 31. Your input is needed to make sure these changes take effect.
There are important changes in the proposed schedule that affect family physicians and the patients you serve. One of the most significant changes to the fee schedule is an 8 percent increase in reimbursement rates to primary care physicians.
As you would expect, the subspecialists are mobilizing their members to oppose this change. We want to be sure the voice of primary care is strongly represented in this debate. Please send your comments of support to CMS. We’ve made it easy by providing the direct link below where you can view the proposed rule and submit your comments.
Comments must be received by CMS no later than 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on Monday, August 31. You can send comments electronically, by mail, or by hand/courier delivery. Electronic submission is quick and easy. Submit your electronic comment here.
Thanks for all your help.
