The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the 2012 OPPS proposed rule late Friday afternoon, on the eve of the July 4th holiday weekend. The proposed rule does not contain many substantive operational changes. However, CMS does propose changes to some much discussed areas, including payment for combined CPT® codes for CT of the abdomen and pelvis and determining required levels of physician supervision.
